Highlight JS needs to be built with specific language support. Here are the steps to build the minified file that appears here.
NOTE: If you are adding support for a language to Highlight.js make sure to add it to the list of languages in the build command below.
You will need:
The packed version of Highlight.js is an un-minified JS file with all of the languages included. Build it with the following:
$> # start in some temp directory $> git clone https://github.com/highlightjs/highlight.js $> cd highlight.js $> git clone https://github.com/highlightjs/highlightjs-closure-templates $> ln -s ../../highlightjs-closure-templates/soy.js src/languages/soy.js $> mkdir test/detect/soy && ln -s ../../../highlightjs-closure-templates/test/detect/soy/default.txt test/detect/soy/default.txt $> npm install $> node tools/build.js -n
The resulting JS file will appear in the “build” directory of the Highlight.js repo under the name “highlight.pack.js”.
Minify the file using closure-compiler using the command below.
$> wget https://dl.google.com/closure-compiler/compiler-latest.zip $> unzip compiler-latest.zip $> mv closure-compiler-*.jar closure-compiler.jar $> java -jar ./closure-compiler.jar \ --js build/highlight.js \ --js_output_file build/highlight.min.js
Copy the header comment that appears on the first line of build/highlight.pack.js and add it to the start of build/highlight.min.js.
Copy the resulting build/highlight.min.js file to lib/highlightjs
