If you write blog posts or tutorials about coding it often helps to include in your pages snippets of example code. When such snippets are syntax highlighted and include line numbers, they become easy to read and understand.

Why was this add-on developed?

We know that concrete5 is an amazing system to develop with, but feel that more developers need to write about it, share code and their discoveries!

So this add-on has been released for free, under an MIT licence, as a way to help make blogging about developing with concrete5 a little easier.

The package can allow be found on github. Pull requests and bug reports are welcomed.
