Currently I have a bunch of code snippets in my Org-based presentation. I'm exporting them with ox-reveal, but the exported code doesn't have any syntax highlighting. Is there any way to:

  1. have syntax highlighting in code blocks in org-mode?
  2. ensure that the syntax highlighting is carried through to the exported HTML?

You can enable syntax highlighting of code blocks in org-mode by setting org-src-fontify-natively to t.

That will probably not help exporting to ox-reveal. In any case "normal" HTML export syntax highlighting (without ox-reveal) is enabled by default if you have htmlize.el installed, so it may be worthwile checking if you have htmlize installed. See this answer on SO

  • Indeed it does, I had been using #+begin_example instead of #+begin_src with the language spec.
