Cisco CLI syntax highlighting

It’s hard to believe that syntax highlighting, manual or automatic, is so hard in 2017…

Really no CLI-/Sourcecode-Plugin that fits my needs available:

  • bold font for relevant commands, in the example ’show…‘
  • colour background for interesting parts of the show-output
N9K-A# show vlan id 123

VLAN Name                             Status    Ports
---- -------------------------------- --------- -------------------------------
123                  active

That’s all I’m looking for…

devoted to: the broadcast

Long time ago, there was a networking protocol called ipv4 which drove the internet and everybody was happy.


Not everybody, unfortunately – my fridge for example had no access to the internet and was not able to order food when the forecast predicted low-food level. My washing machine couldn’t send an email when finishing work, it wasn’t possible for my car to have a facebook account to like empty highways without speed limit…

These issues have been solved with ipv6, ip next generation, the new foundation of the internet.

The broadcast-concept left the stage, too.

Never miss the broadcast – catch the frame with destination address „all-ones“!
