The SyntaxHighlightPages extension highlights pages based on title suffixes; it depends on Extension:SyntaxHighlight.

Additionally the extension adds a Download link to the toolbox on highlighted pages.

Installation edit

  • Download and place the file(s) in a directory called SyntaxHighlightPages in your extensions/ folder.
  • Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php file:
    wfLoadExtension( 'SyntaxHighlightPages' );
  •   Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.

Configuration parameters edit

The enabled suffixes.

For example:

$wgSyntaxHighlightPagesSuffixes = ['txt', 'html', 'css', 'xml', 'js', 'php'];

Note that the suffix needs to be a short name listed under https://pygments.org/docs/lexers/.

Unfortunately using the file extensions known to Pygments does not work since Extension:SyntaxHighlight provides no PHP wrapper for pygments.lexers.find_lexer_class_for_filename.

This does mean that adding e.g. 'htm' will not work because it is not a lexer name.
