Subject: [PATCH 1/1] org-src.el: Add option to delay fontification of source blocks
Date: Thu, 25 Mar 2021 18:19:41 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

* lisp/org-src.el (org-src-font-lock-fontify-block): Add option to delay
fontification of source blocks.  If
`org-src-font-lock-fontify-idle-delay' is non-nil fontification of
code blocks is delayed until the user has become

Fontification of source blocks can be very slow. This will add an option
for users to delay the fontification until they have become idle so that
the typing delay is kept low. The trade-off is that there will be no
syntax highlighting when the user is typing.
