Installation (basis of SyntaxHighlighter)

Aug 7, 2008 at 7:42 AM
I just got the 0.2-version of the syntaxhighlighter and read the install.txt-file.

All it says is:

Install notes:
Copy to and replace all files in your AppCode/Extensions/CodeFormatter/ folder.

Is that it? No dlls? No prior installment of code from Wilco's SyntaxHighlighter?

No, that's it!

The AppCode version release (currently the only release) is packaged so that you drop all files in the App_Code/Extensions/CodeFormatter/ folder without need for any additional dll's or otherwise. If you download the source code, however, you have the choice to compile the project as a dll and only use the CodeFormatter.cs file in the Extensions folder.

I have been busy adding functionallity and checking in bug fixes (as you can see in under the Source Code tab) lately but I will produce some documentation as soon as possible.

Ps. Remember that the project is still in beta and the packaging choice will most probably change in a future release.
