I wondered what the name of googles syntax highlighting is, that they use on their googlesource.com page and for example Chromium.

1 Answer 1


Have a look here, prettify might be a candidate.

And here it says

Powers code.google.com and stackoverflow.com

However if I look at the Chromium site, it mentions gitiles, But I fail to spot more than a

import syntaxhighlight.ParseResult;

In the code. It might be the Java port of prettify: java-prettify


The COPYING file lists prettify.


The WORKSPACE file lists java-prettify.

artifact = "com.github.twalcari:java-prettify:1.2.2",
