WordPress Crayon Plugin

October 25, 2011 - Posted in Other , Programming Posted by:

So as I’ve been designing this blog I decided I needed a good syntax highlighter as hopefully I’ll be posting lots of yummy source code for all kinds of interesting things. After a little while of searching I discovered found Crayon Syntax Highlighter by Aram Kocharyan, in short. WOW. This plugin is wonderful, uses jQuery and boasts a robust, but elegant syntax highlighting schema.

Hands down this plugin has been wonderful to use in every way, the only think I found it lacked (that I personally wanted) was the ability to pop code out of my blog into a another window, as you can see this blog is very thin and makes for lack luster code reading. After a quick contact with the plugin’s author low and behold the same day he build the feature into the plugin. How’s that for service!

Finally I built my own theme, for here at epicgeeks.net however I’ve made this theme available for download here: Epicgeeks Crayon Theme (686)
