There are several ways of creating language objects, but we can divide them into two basic categories:

Directly with class name

First of all you can just create new object, it's the best way if you exactly know language that you want to highlight and it's not dependent on any input.

use Kadet\Highlighter\Language;

$language = new Language\Php([options]); 


But it's not the only way, if chosen language is dependent on some kind of input, it'd be much better to use some of helper factory methods:

use Kadet\Highlighter\Language\Language;

$language = Language::byName('php', [options]); // with name
$language = Language::byMime('application/x-php', [options]); // with MIME type
$language = Language::byFilename('test.php', [options]); // by extension

All alias definitions can be found in Config/metadata.php
