This is the home of Pygments. It is a generic syntax highlighter suitable for use in code hosting, forums, wikis or other applications that need to prettify source code. Highlights are:
a wide range of 577 languages and other text formats is supported
special attention is paid to details that increase highlighting quality
support for new languages and formats are added easily; most languages use a simple regex-based lexing mechanism
a number of output formats is available, among them HTML, RTF, LaTeX and ANSI sequences
it is usable as a command-line tool and as a library
Like every open-source project, we are always looking for volunteers to help us with programming. Python knowledge is required, but don’t fear: Python is a very clear and easy to learn language. Read our contribution guidelines for more information.
If you found a bug, just open a ticket in the GitHub tracker. Be sure to log in to be notified when the issue is fixed – development is not fast-paced as the library is quite stable. You can also send an e-mail to the developers, see below.
