Hexo-Prism-Plugin NPM

Since highlight.js didn't support JSX syntax properly, I wrote this plugin to replace Hexo's default code highlight plugin.


npm i -S hexo-prism-plugin


Firstly, you should edit your _config.yml by adding following configuration.

  mode: 'preprocess'    # realtime/preprocess
  theme: 'default'
  line_number: false    # default false
  custom_css: 'path/to/your/custom.css'     # optional

After that, check highlight option in _config.yml. Make sure that default code highlight plugin is disabled.

  enable: false

Finally, clean and re-generate your project by running following commands:

hexo clean
hexo generate
