[Improving Boost Docs] Help Request, Trac Syntax Coloring for Boostbook, Quickbook and Jamfiles.

Matias Capeletto
Note: This message is part of a series of "Help request" posts. We
need cool guys to help us in the docs project. There are some
interesting task that may be done by one or two folks, and that will
really help that this project comes up well. There are no time frames,
just a bunch of people with different paces working together to make
boost docs better. I am sending this message to the boost devel list
to reach more hands. If you are interested (please be!) move further
discussion to the boost-docs list. Thanks!


Trac can be extended to support coloring of source code both in the
wiki and browsing the repository. It will be very nice if we can get
it to produce fancy output for Boostbook, Quickbook and Jamfiles.

You can read more about this here:

In a short investigation I have found that SilverCity[1] and
scintilla[2] are a nice option.

The project will consist in developing style definitions for boost
used file types so Trac know how to show us our source.

I think this can be a fun couple of weekends project.
Please jump in if you want to pursue it, you are going to make tons of
people happy.

Best regards
