React Syntax Highlighter is a syntax highlighting component for react with prismjs or highlightjs ast using inline styles. It is possible to use it in Scala. Here I will provide short instructions how to do that.


The code is based one the react-syntax-highlighter wrapper for React Syntax Highlighter component. It is written using scalajs-react library for ScalaJs.

Add dependencies in build.sbt:

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  "com.dbrsn.scalajs.react.components" %%% "react-syntax-highlighter" % "0.3.1"
npmDependencies in Compile ++= Seq(
  "react-syntax-highlighter" -> "10.1.2",
  "babel-runtime" -> "6.26.0",
  "react" -> "16.7.0",
  "react-dom" -> "16.7.0"


Example of usage:

For highlightjs-based component:

SyntaxHighlighter(HljsLanguage.javascript, style = HljsStyle.docco)("(num) => num + 1")

For prismjs-based component:

PrismSyntaxHighlighter(PrismLanguage.javascript, style = PrismStyle.dark)("(num) => num + 1")
