SyntaxHighlighter XQuery brush 18 Nov 2009

Update: Now hosted on GitHub:

I’ve just improved the code snippets in my posts by using the excellent SyntaxHighlighter by Alex Gorbatchev.

I had to write a new brush for XQuery, but this was pretty straightforward (it has a much better extension system than I found in Notepad++ for example). As well as XQuery 1.0 functions, keywords etc. I’ve included the MarkLogic 4.1 API.

If you want to use it download SyntaxHighlighter, and then get the XQuery brush files from GitHub:

Example usage:

<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/shCore.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts/shBrushXQuery.js"></script>
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="styles/shCore.css"/>
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="styles/shThemeDefault.css"/>
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="styles/shThemeXQuery.css"/>
<script type="text/javascript">
    SyntaxHighlighter.config.clipboardSwf = 'scripts/clipboard.swf';

<pre class="brush: xquery;">xquery version "1.0-ml";</pre>

Next job is to change the layout of this blog to make the content column wider...
