Highlight the world

Firefly is a pure swift Syntax highlighter for iOS. It was created to be a fast and native solution to a problem that did not have many good solutions. The project is open sourced so that anyone can help improve it and make it the best syntax highlighter for iOS.

Why Make Firefly?

When I started working on Jellycuts, there was no good solution for an iOS based syntax highlighter. There were solutions that existed, such as Sourceful by Paul Hudson and Highlightr. Both of these had drawbacks when it came to loading large files and adding custom languages. Because of this, I took the opportunity to create a modern syntax highlighter for both SwiftUI and UIKit.
