A couple of days ago I released WP Chili, a simple WordPress plugin that installs Chili into WordPress and let’s you add client-side code highlighting to your posts, with extreme simplicity.

After activating WP Chili, it’s just a matter of wrapping your snippets into code or pre-code elements, with the programming language of the snippet as a class, like in the following example:

<pre><code class="php">
echo &quot;Hello $name&quot;;
</code></pre>

When the post reaches your readers, the snippet is unescaped by their browser and highlighted by Chili 1.9 (downloaded from your server). Your readers will see the example rendered as:

echo "Hello $name";
