Syntax highlighting in Julia exists? Yes, you can make it work even though no plugins currently support it. The way I was able to get it to work was to use the WP-GeSHi-Highlight WordPress plugin which uses GeSHi to perform the syntax highlighting. Sure enough, an unofficial Julia syntax file for GeSHi is hosted on GitHub. I manually plopped this file into the GeSHi folder in my WordPress install, used the command lang="julia" and you can see at the top of this page that it worked!

  1. Thanks for writing this post!

    Support for Julia is now part of the WP-GeSHi-Highlight 1.3.1 release, so you can safely upgrade.
