1. install highlight

2. copy the following code into your clipboard (ctrl+v)

Purpose: It’s the material, which will be highlighted.

# It's ruby code
class User
  def foo
    puts "foo"
  end

  def bar
    puts "bar"
  end
end

3. execute the following commandline in your Iterm2(or Terminal), it will generate highlighted html code in your clipboard.

{query} is a placehold, please replace it with language, such as ruby, python, java.

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin
pbpaste | highlight --fragment --enclose-pre --inline-css  --syntax {query} --font Monaco --out-format html --style solarized-dark | pbcopy

What do those options mean?

# -O, --out-format=<format>      output file in given format, <format>=[html, xhtml latex, tex      
# -S, --syntax=<type>            specify type of source code
# -f, --fragment                 omit document header and footer
# -k, --font=<font>              set font (specific to output format)
# -s, --style=<style>            set colour style (see -w)   
#     --enclose-pre              enclose fragmented output with pre tag
#     --inline-css               output CSS within each tag (verbose output)

highlight java code

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin
pbpaste | highlight --fragment --enclose-pre --inline-css  --syntax java --font Monaco --out-format html --style solarized-dark | pbcopy

highlight ruby code

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin
pbpaste | highlight --fragment --enclose-pre --inline-css  --syntax ruby --font Monaco --out-format html --style solarized-dark | pbcopy

4. insert html code into your Zotero note.

click html button

insert html code from your clipboard (ctrl+v), save it!

5. it works.

Conclusion

No need to hack Zotero config. It’s much better.
