Basic syntax highlighter

Prism is a lightweight, extensible syntax highlighter, built with modern web standards in mind. To highlight code syntax, add .language-* class to the <code> element. By default, highlighter displays a small text block with current language on the top right corner. This functionality is an extra option, provided by "Show language" prism.js addon.

<div class="navbar navbar-inverse">
	<div class="navbar-header">
		<a href="index.html" class="navbar-brand">
			<img src="../../../../global_assets/images/logo_light.png" alt="Logo">
		</a>
	</div>

	<div class="navbar-collapse collapse" id="navbar-mobile">
		<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
			<li>...</li>
			<li class="dropdown">...</li>
		</ul>

		<div class="navbar-right">
			<ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-left">
				<li>...</li>
				<li class="dropdown">...</li>
			</ul>
		</div>
	</div>
</div>

Line highlight

Highlights specific lines and/or line ranges with light green color and displays start and end line numbers. To highlight specific line, add data-line="*" attribute, to highlight line ranges add data-line="*-*" attribute. Multiple lines or ranges are also supported, to use just separate values with comma: data-line="*, *-*". This prism addon is included to the current plugin build by default.

Example

<!-- Navbar markup -->
<div class="navbar navbar-inverse">
	<div class="navbar-header">
		<a href="index.html" class="navbar-brand">
			<img src="../../../../global_assets/images/logo_light.png" alt="Logo">
		</a>
	</div>

	<div class="navbar-collapse collapse" id="navbar-mobile">
		<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
			<li>...</li>
			<li class="dropdown">...</li>
		</ul>

		<div class="navbar-right">
			<ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-left">
				<li>...</li>
				<li class="dropdown">...</li>
			</ul>
		</div>
	</div>
</div>
<!-- /navbar markup -->
Line numbers

Line number at the beginning of code lines. Obviously, this is supposed to work only for code blocks - <pre><code> - and not for inline code. To use this feature, add .line-numbers class to your desired <pre> element and line-numbers plugin will take care. This prism addon is included to the current plugin build by default.

Example

<!-- Navbar markup -->
<div class="navbar navbar-inverse">
	<div class="navbar-header">
		<a href="index.html" class="navbar-brand">
			<img src="../../../../global_assets/images/logo_light.png" alt="Logo">
		</a>
	</div>

	<div class="navbar-collapse collapse" id="navbar-mobile">
		<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
			<li>...</li>
			<li class="dropdown">...</li>
		</ul>

		<div class="navbar-right">
			<ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-left">
				<li>...</li>
				<li class="dropdown">...</li>
			</ul>
		</div>
	</div>
</div>

Define starting line

Defines starting line number at the beginning of code lines. This feature works as an optional addition to the line number plugin. To set a custom starting line number, add data-start="*" attribute to the code block markup and it will shift the line counter. Negative values are also supported. This prism feature is also included by default.

Example

<!-- Navbar markup -->
<div class="navbar navbar-inverse">
	<div class="navbar-header">
		<a href="index.html" class="navbar-brand">
			<img src="../../../../global_assets/images/logo_light.png" alt="Logo">
		</a>
	</div>

	<div class="navbar-collapse collapse" id="navbar-mobile">
		<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
			<li>...</li>
			<li class="dropdown">...</li>
		</ul>

		<div class="navbar-right">
			<ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-left">
				<li>...</li>
				<li class="dropdown">...</li>
			</ul>
		</div>
	</div>
