    eshighlight Build Status

    JavaScript code highlighter based on esprima.

    Install

    npm install eshighlight
    

    Usage

    Takes a JavaScript string, returns an html string.

    var highlight = require('eshighlight');
     
    highlight('var x = 42');

    which returns:

    <span class="keyword">var</span> <span class="identifier">x</span> = <span class="numeric">42</span>

    Prior Art

    Before writing this, I looked at these solutions:

    The main motivation for this library was so I can make my blog to look like sublime. None of the highlighters I looked at let you color parameters. I want that nice orange on my params yo.

    I didn't like that they all only tokenized rather than doing a proper parse. I think the parse tree approach might be interesting.

    Compared to highlight.js and google-code-prettify, eshighlight has the drawbacks that it does not support languages besides JavaScript and only works in node.
