Hello. Ramir of the Russian Wikibooks here.
Many want syntax highlighting for various programming languages (C, Ruby, Haskell, Java, Lisp …).
- a website running on MediaWiki. There, such source:
# Ruby code here
is rendered as a preformatted block of code with its syntactic structure nicely highlighted.
Please, please implement this on Wikimedia projects' sites.
This might need to be kicked back to an extension request if the extension
doesn't support all the languages requested, although that would probably be due
to a lack of support in GeSHi. We could, perhaps, install multiple extensions,
if there were sufficient to cover all the bases.
I bet, non-Russian Wikibooks (or even Wikipedia) users will love such an extension also.
GeSHi seems to support a great many languages; certainly all the popular ones.
If this is enabled, it would probably be useful for all the Wikipedias and
Wikibooks at least, not just the Russian Wikibooks, so I'll dupe this. GeSHi
doesn't support Haskell, but I don't spot other significant omissions.
