SPL Syntax Highlighter

Splunk AppInspect Passed
This app allows you to syntax highlight SPL queries, .conf files, dashboards other files. When you "copy" the highlighted text and paste it in word documents or emails and the colors will be preserved. Perfect for sharing queries that users can understand more easily!

Use the online version here: https://git.io/splhighlighter

The online version is kinda like pastebin for SPL and config files


Use the online version here: https://git.io/splhighlighter


The web version has the same functionality as the splunkbase app, so is best for most users. It is also safe (Code is never sent to the server so you can use it with sensitive information - unless you use the built-in URL shortener).
