GeSHi or Generic Syntax Highlighter is a free software library that allows syntax highlighting of source code for several markup and programming languages. The program is written in PHP and is bundled or available as an add-on in popular web-based applications, such as Dokuwiki, Mambo, MediaWiki (see extension), phpBB and WikkaWiki. Wikipedia uses GeSHi as its primary syntax highlighter.

GeSHi was originally designed as a module to introduce syntax highlighting in the phpBB board system. Later, it was made to work without a phpBB as a stand-alone library.
After a long time of inactivity the project was handed over to Benny Baumann on March 15, 2008.
