highlighting-kate-0.4: Syntax highlighting

MaintainerJohn MacFarlane <jgm@berkeley.edu>



This helper module exports the main highlighting and formatting functions.

A typical application will combine a highlighter and a formatter. This one reads ruby code from stdin and writes HTML:

 import Text.Highlighting.Kate
 import Text.Blaze.Renderer.String (renderHtml)
 import Text.Blaze (toHtml)
 import Text.Blaze.Html5 as H

 main = do
   code <- getContents
   putStrLn $ renderHtml
            $ do H.head (styleToHtml tango)
                 H.body $ toHtml
                        $ formatBlock defaultFormatOpts
                        $ highlightAs "ruby" code
