Pygments - the Python syntax highlighter - is a nice syntax highlighter with a lot of lexers, formatters and styles. This extension provide a content element and frontend module that output highlighted code made with pygments.


You can select a style per element. This is useful if you use different styles on different pages. But keep in mind that you never can use multiple styles on the same page!


If you select a style in the content element or frontend module, the required style will be added to the page. If you want to use a "global" style definition, do not select any style in the element. You can dump the styles with pygmentize -f html -S <style>. In most cases pygmentize -f html -S default is a good choice. Use pygmentize -L styles to get a complete list of all available styles.

After you dumped the styles, put them into a css file and include these file in your layout.

Tip: use the style selector in the element to find your favorite style.
