Add another 'brick' Package




This package extends the brick library with syntax highlighting support using the Skylighting library.

See the Haddock documentation for Brick.Widgets.Skylighting for API details, and see the demonstration program in programs for a complete working example.

Note: this library requires its users to provide syntax highlighting definitions. For that, there are two choices:

  • Obtain XML specifications from e.g. the skylighting-core sources, then bundle these with your program files. Those files are GPL-licensed, so this option is preferable when you want to ship these GPL-licensed files with your program without the GPL infecting the license of your application.

  • Use the compiled-in syntax specifications in the skylighting package. This option is preferable if you are okay with a GPL-licensed dependency (i.e. if your application is also GPL'd) and you especially want to avoid having to bundle the XML files with your application or avoid the runtime loading of such files.

*Note that all licence references and agreements mentioned in the brick-skylighting README section above are relevant to that project's source code only.
