Pygments is a syntax highlighting package written in Python.

Project description


Pygments is a syntax highlighting package written in Python.

It aims to be a generic syntax highlighter for general use in all
kinds of software such as forum systems, wikis or other applications
that need to prettify source code. Highlights are:

* a wide range of common languages and markup formats is supported
* special attention is paid to details, increasing quality by a fair amount
* support for new languages and formats are added easily
* a number of output formats, presently HTML, LaTeX and ANSI sequences
* it is usable as a command-line tool and as a library
* ... and it highlights even Brainfuck!

The `Pygments trunk <>`__
is installable via *easy_install* with ``easy_install Pygments==dev``.
