As a plugin to replace "Crayon Syntax Highlighter", I think this plugin running on Gutenberg is the most powerful and excellent. It is also simple and easy to use.

Plugin works nicely but is lacking in highlighting for Java, Kotlin, Groovy, XML. You might get away with using the Javascript highlighting for Java, Kotlin and Groovy code and the HTML highlighting for XML code. But in general it seems the languages provided are aimed at front-end and mobile developers. Hope the author adds languages, or makes it easy to add your own.
