Pygments

Saturday 21 October 2006

Pygments is a new pure-Python package for syntax highlighting source code. It seems very well done, and quite full-featured. Not only does it lex and color a bunch of languages, but it handles embeddings too, like Django templates in HTML. I use SilverCity on this blog, but have never liked that it calls into Scintilla DLLs to do the hard work, and isn’t up to the task of two languages shuffled together. Pygments seems like a good alternative.
