For more example code slides, see the Code Highlighting Guide. You can also find a complete list of the currently available themes on the Highlight.js website.

Note, double-barrel highlight.js style names, such as Mono Blue, must be hyphenated. For example:

highlight : mono-blue

All highlight.js style names specified on the highlight setting must be in lower-case only.
