Thanks for the idea! It's a good idea and the only reason I haven't done it yet because no one asked for it. 🙂 Looking around, there isn't a wealth of options for highlighting in Crystal, and I'd like to avoid any (more) javascript dependencies. There is one that looks like it might be good. It will take some time to sort through these, figure out the best way to go about it, and then make the feature.

I also want to make sure it can be disabled

I honestly don't understand why avoiding JS and disabling colors but okay.

Any news on this ?

Hi kaki87. No news. I have a bunch of other tasks taking priority (migrating websites off of Heroku, starting a new job) so this is still on the back burner for now. If anyone is reading this and would like to take a run at it, I do have time to steer you in a direction. Feel free to post here and I'll offer what guidance I can.
