Custom Languages with Brushes

Code Bank uses SyntaxHighlighter to highlight code snippets, to provide a language with syntax highlighting you must add to your yml configs the following then run dev/build?flush=all.

CodeBank:
    extra_languages:
        - Name: "Example Language" #Name of the language
          HighlightCode: "example" #Highlighter code
          FileName: "ex" #File extension
          Brush: "mysite/javascript/shBrushEx.js" #Relative Path to the snippet highlighter brush

Switching the search engine

By default Code Bank uses MySQL's fulltext searching and on databases like Postgres it uses a partial match filtering for searching both from the client and in the web interface. Code Bank provides support for switching the engine to Solr if you have the silverstripe/fulltextsearch installed and a Solr server available. You may switch the search engine by adding the following to your mysite/_config/config.yml after add flush=1 to the url to update the config cache.

CodeBank:
    snippet_search_engine: "SolrCodeBankSearchEngine"
Writing your own engine

Code Bank provides an api for you to hook in your own engine, you simply need to implement the ICodeBankSearchEngine interface and define the methods in the interface. The key thing to remember is that the doSnippetSearch() method takes 3 parameters the first $keyword, is the term/keyword the user is searching for (this maybe empty), the second ($langugeID) is the database ID of the language the user is filtering to. The last parameter ($folderID) is the ID of the folder the system is requesting matches for. The method itself should always return a SS_List subclass typically it should be DataList containing or pointing to only snippets. To enable your custom engine follow the steps above.
