sfSyntaxHighlighter plugin

The sfSyntaxHighlighterPlugin adds automatically the javascript code needed to use the SyntaxHighlighter javascript library.

After installation, you will only need to enable the sfSyntaxHighlighterFilter in the applications you want.


1. Install the plugin

    symfony plugin-install

2. Modify the filters.yml file of the application to enable the filter so that the plugin can add the Javascript code at the bottom of every page.

    # generally, you will want to insert your own filters here
        class: sfSyntaxHighlighterFilter

3. Clear the cache

    symfony cc
