Lighter.js – Syntax Highlighting For MooTools

Lighter.js is a free syntax highlighting class powered by MooTools. It takes advantage of many of the Framework’s features. Using it can be as simple as adding a single script to your webpage, selecting the elements you wish to highlight, and Lighter.js takes care of the rest.

All browsers supported by MooTools are compatible with Lighter.js including Safari 2+, Internet Explorer 6+, Firefox 2+, and Opera 9+.


  • Easy to use with familiar MooTools syntax
  • Outputs in various formats like ordered lists and tables
  • Unique JavaScript based stylesheet creation. Or you can use stylesheets the good old way
  • GeSHi-like class naming for (hopeful) style interoperability
  • Extensible language and themeing engines

Developed by José Prado; Lighter.js is available for download under MIT license. You can find further information, demo & download on Lighter.js Website.
