Is askbot having code highlighting?
for various languages is askbot supporting code/ keyword lightlights?
In theory, Askbot uses
python-markdown2 so it can do everything described in the markdown2 wiki. However, the current code, i.e.
askbot.utils.markdown.get_parser does not enable syntax highlighting.
For a least invasive extension one could subclass markdown2.Markdown, extend the constructor and assign the new subclass to
settings.py. I didn't test the following, but I am confident solutions look something like this:
in somefile.py (in Askbot's PYTHONPATH)
import markdown2 class MyMarkdown(markdown2.Markdown): def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs): extras = kwargs.get('extras', list()) extras.extend(['fenced-code-blocks']) kwargs['extras'] = extras super(MyMarkdown, self).__init__(*args, **kwargs)
ASKBOT_MARKDOWN_CLASS = 'somefile.MyMarkdown'
