This extension highlights the code snippets over 350 languages in LibreOffice.
To highlight a code snippet, follow these steps:
- Insert a new Text Box (Insert -> Text Box)
- Copy and paste/write your code snippet into the text box (You can choose any fonts based on your preference)
- Select the text box
- Go to Tools -> Highlight Code -> <Language of the code>
That's it. Your code should be colored based on the syntax.
I have tested only a few languages. If you find any bugs, please report them at GiHub Issues.
Note: This extension uses pygments to color the code. Pygments does not highlight some languages properly. Therefore, you may not get the best outcome for some languages. Sorry for the inconvenience.
