SyntaxHighlighter by DreamProjections

Since we've started this website I'm looking for a syntax highlighting tool that can be used for code samples. Geshi seems to be great, but since I'm using Tomcat I cannot run PHP scripts that easily. The same applies to the well-known Beautifier highlighter and it hasn't been updated for long time. Flash Text Formatter is a good one, but to me it seems more appropriate for full Flash websites. So one day while I was browsing at the YUI examples I saw another engine that uses pure JavaScript to highlight most of the languages that I need. This is how I've chosen the dp.SyntaxHighlighter and below you can see some samples of it:




This showcase uses a custom copy of dp.SyntaxHighlighter that matches the look and feel of our website. It also includes improved CSS highlighting, ActionScript support and a minor Ruby related fix. I'm providing my version for download and I hope that one day I'll find some time to convert it to a blojsom plugin.

Asual is the new blojsom default theme

There's a new blojsom release out there and we're responsible for the new default theme. Currently it matches the look of our site, but we're thinking about some cool improvements and blojsom style colors scheme. The theme uses tableless layout with valid XHTML & CSS code.

Thanks to David Czarnecki for the collaboration and support.

The power of blojsom

Our blog is up for 2 weeks and I'm happy to see that the lead blojsom developer David Czarnecki writes about it on his blog. We're also listed on sites running blojsom page next to sites like Apple OS X Tiger Server, JBoss and Hewlett-Packard Labs Semantic Blogging.

May be you're wondering what blojsom is? Its one of the best open source java blog systems out there, very lightweight, file based, with extensible plugin architecture. It was inspired by another weblog application called blosxom. Apple is going to include blojsom in their next OS X Server.

I'm still polishing the look of this blog but once its ready I will contribute our theme to the blojsom community. It conforms with the latest XHTML and CSS recommendations so hopefully people will like it.
