    How do you change the coloring styles? The defaults are pretty ugly and make reading java code a chore. Inspecting the HTML reveals the codemacro is using inline styles and not stylesheets... is there a way to change that?

      I changed the collibri CSS file, there are .code (and .box) styles used to demark code blocks. I modified those to shrink the font, use a monospaced font, and added a separate .code style to add a bit of padding to the box.

      Code macro use inline style only for colors, general font style is done at .code CSS class level

    How to configure code colouring style

    One can choose one of the numerous styles that come with pygmets. To configure highlighting style, first stop XWiki server.

    Then modify file /pygments/styles/colorful.py/pygments/styles/__init__.py in the %XWikiHome%/webapps/xwiki/WEB-INF/lib/pygments-<version.numbers>-xwiki.jar.

    Change the STYLE_MAP variable's 'default' key's value.

    #: Maps style names to 'submodule::classname'.
    STYLE_MAP = {
        'default':  'default::DefaultStyle',
        'emacs':    'emacs::EmacsStyle',
        'friendly': 'friendly::FriendlyStyle',
        'colorful': 'colorful::ColorfulStyle',
        'autumn':   'autumn::AutumnStyle',
        'murphy':   'murphy::MurphyStyle',
        'tango':    'tango::TangoStyle',

    to one of the available styles. E.g. 'colorful'. So the change will look like 

    STYLE_MAP = {
        'default':  'friendly::FriendlyStyle',

    Save the __init__.py file in the pygments-<version.numbers>-xwiki.jar package. 

    Start the server and verify that colour style has updated.

    By adding your own file to /pygments/styles/colorful.py/pygments/styles folder of the pygments-<version.numbers>-xwiki.jar package and registering it in the STYLE_MAP variable, you will be able to configure your own code colouring styles.

      Since 2.4M1 it's easily configurable in xwiki.properties files:

    Where can I find the syntax for specifying all supported languages - XY in code language = XY? Right now, I want to use syntax highlighting in xwiki for VB.net, but I was not able to find any resource that would tell me what code XY would be for Visual Basic. It should be supported according to http://pygments.org/languages

    In the end, vbnet seems to do the trick for VB.net code. I'd still be interested to know all available languages names that can be used in the macro

    Is there a way to set the "startinline" Option of Pygments PHP Lexer?
    See http://pygments.org/docs/lexers/#lexers-for-php-and-related-languages for details.
