Syntax Highlighting

When can I find information about supporting additional language syntax highlighting?

I did some research myself on this. Community appears to use TinyMCE. TinyMCE supports plugins such as Code Sample . Code Sample gives you access to Prism JS syntax highlighter. https://prismjs.com/

So can the people who know the platform tell me if these pieces will work on community?  I am researching this for F5 so we can bring custom Syntax highlighting to iRules code samples.

@CarolineS who should I be asking?

Current version of TinyMCE is 4.x and v5 won't be available until Aurora arrives. You may find this link to the Code Sample plugin for TinyMCE v4 helpful for capability. https://www.tiny.cloud/docs-4x/plugins/codesample/

@allensmith81 may have some advice for you.

Thank you! that is the link I was looking for..

@allensmith81 would be grateful if you have any experience with deploying this into communities. So based on the https://www.tiny.cloud/docs-4x/plugins/codesample/ plugin we can deploy prism syntax highlighting support. If I can confirm this is possible I can have one of my friends write a custom prism plugin to support iRules which are a specialised extension of TCL language.
