Integrations with Third-Party Services


Torchlight is an amazing API for syntax highlighting, and is used by this site. I cannot recommend it highly enough, especially for documentation sites and code-heavy blogs! As such, HydePHP has built-in support for Torchlight, which is automatically enabled once you add an API token to your .env file. Nothing else needs to be done!

Getting started

To get started you need an API token which you can get at It is entirely free for personal and open source projects, as seen on their pricing page.

When you have an API token, set it in the .env file in the root directory of your project. Once a token is set, Hyde will automatically enable the CommonMark extension.


Attribution and configuration

Note that for the free plan you need to provide an attribution link. Thankfully Hyde injects a customizable link automatically to all pages that use Torchlight. You can of course disable and customize this in the config/torchlight.php file.

1'attribution' => [
2 'enabled' => true,
3 'markdown' => 'Syntax highlighting by <a href="" rel="noopener nofollow"></a>',
