Beautiful code syntax highlighting as Vue.js component.


Now, you can use this module in two diferrent ways, as a component or as a directive.


In any component:



Window styles are already present in a component mode, but you will need to select and include a theme to properly highlight your code. (See the themes section.)


In your main file:


And then in any Vue component:


All markup under the div element having the following structure will be syntax highlighted.


To give the highlighter a window look in a directive mode, also don’t forget to include the ./node_modules/vue-code-highlight/themes/window.css file somewhere in your app.


In order to visually higlight your code, you need to select a theme from ./node_modules/vue-code-highlight/themes/ and import it somewhere into your component/application. These are just regular prism themes, so feel free to improvise.
