The goal of the project is to provide an ability to add syntax highlight feature everywhere you need.
There are a tons of cases when you need to write some part of code right in a web page. It can be custom CSS code for a WordPress theme, small piece of HTML markup inside your CMS or anything else. As usual, the task is quite small. But it will be much more convenient to type your code in a reach code editor instead of a plain text field.
We've created the browser extension which will help you to turn any text field into the powerful code editor tool with a syntax highlight feature.
Another useful feature of the extension is an ability to add syntax highlighting to any text document opened in the browser.
The extension is extremely simple. You just need to press right mouse button on a plain text editor or text document and choose necessary programming language (see the screenshot).
We're going to add more powerful features to the extension in the future versions. But now we want to keep beta version as simple as possible and collect some feedback form a users. So, feel free to share with us your ideas and thoughts!
We've in mind a wide list of features for the next versions of the extension.
For example, it should be possible to choose different themes and configure various code editing options for each supported programming language.
Finally, CodeHighlight should become really powerful and convenient tool for developers. Anyway, we will be glad to get any kind of feedback from you.
Beta version of the extension works quite good with a plain text editors, but has some known problems with a WYSIWYG editors support.
We're working on troubleshooting these problems, and hope you understand that we eager to share the extension with you and collect some valuable feedback.
So, please be patient and share with us any problems you faced with the extension. We promise to do everything possible to make the extension really convenient and bug free.
