pygments: Generic syntax highlighter¶
Pygments is a syntax highlighting package written in Python.
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 over 300 languages and other text 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, RTF, SVG, all image formats that PIL supports and ANSI sequences
it is usable as a command-line tool and as a library
Special Update/Build Instructions¶
sage_prompt.patch: patch pygments/lexers/agile.py to treat the “sage:” prompt like Python’s “>>>” prompt. This allows a very kludgy patch to be removed from the Sphinx package (see #10118).
Equivalent System Packages¶
$ conda install pygments python:pygments
macports: install the following packages: pygments python:pygments opensuse:
$ sudo zypper install pygments python:pygments
However, these system packages will not be used for building Sage because using Python site-packages is not supported by the Sage distribution; see https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/29023
