pip is a script that downloads and installs modules from the Python Package Index, PyPI. It should come installed with your python distribution. If you are running linux, pip may be bundled separately. On a Debian-based system (including Ubuntu), you can install it as root using

apt-get update
apt-get install python-pip

It uses the xcolor LaTeX package to handle correctly colors in spans and divs and the soul package for highlighing the text.
