Prism API

Jenkins GitHub Actions GitHub pull requests

Provides Prism for Jenkins Plugins. Prism is a lightweight, extensible syntax highlighter, built with modern web standards in mind. It’s used in millions of websites, including some of those you visit daily.

Additionally, this plugin provides:

  • A global theme configuration that will be used by all source code views:

Themes selection
  • Support for Jenkins dark theme:

Dark Prism theme in Jenkins
  • A default source code rendering view (see SourceCodeViewModel) that can be used in a Jenkins plugin to show the source code in a separate page. This page renders the source code with the configured theme.

Grid layout in Jenkins
  • A configuration of permitted source code directories on agents. So Jenkins will not show sensitive files by accident.

How to use the plugin

In order to use this JS library, add a maven dependency to your pom:

  <version>[latest version]</version>

Then you can use Prism in your jelly files using the following snippet:

<j:jelly xmlns:j="jelly:core" xmlns:p="/prism">
  <p:prism configuration="${it.prismConfiguration}"/>

In your descriptor you will need to add a getPrismConfiguration() method:

public PrismConfiguration getPrismConfiguration() {
    return PrismConfiguration.getInstance();


For source code rendering look into the warnings plugin that uses the SourceCodeViewModel to render the source code with the selected warning.
