PrettyCode is syntax highlighting plugin, which enables using Wikidpad as a well-organized code-snippets repository. This plugin was made by user sweinst2000. Unfortunately it was only referenced in the Yahoo mail group, so it was not easy to find information on that plugin.
Almost all information in this page is copied from mailing-list messages from 2008...
The plugin works best with external preview (IE). It also works with internal preview, but background colors will not be available.
Installation before WikidPad 2.3beta08
- Download the plugin file prettyCode.py from http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/wikidPad/files/plugins
- place it in the "user_extensions" directory of your Wikidpad installation
- get the latest egg for pygments at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Pygments
- go the folder extension of your wikipad distribution/sources. Create a sub-folder "lib"
- copy the pygments egg to the new sub-folder
- if you are using a binary distribution, you may have also to copy the python modules:
Note: I had to move the commands.py also into the "lib" directory.
Installation since WikidPad 2.3beta08
