Solution Description

Eclipse plugin for highlighting the background of the source code.

It works with Java code as well as with indented text: markup and text files.

I use eclipse Neon and this plugin does't works :( I've tried to disable "current line highlighting" but nothin happened...

Hi,

This plugin seems to be out of date, I got this error :
HTTP Server 'Service Unavailable': http:// editbox.sourceforge.net/updates/content.xml
HTTP Server 'Service Unavailable': http:// editbox.sourceforge.net/updates/content.xml
HttpClient connection error response code 503.

Regards,
Laurent

This plugin adds a new domain of syntax highlighting by coloring code blocks with a background color. This makes it easy to distinguish different code blocks and greatly improves readability of the source code.
