Installing Pygments In Jekyll

November - 2021

First off: it's Pygments, not pigments

Took me a minute to figure that out.

I think pygments comes installed with jekyll by default. You just need to generate the style sheet with:

pygmentize -S default -f html > source/css/pygments/default.css

You can then copy and paste the code into your main CSS if you only want to use one.

Then, in your documents do:

{% highlight python %}
... code ...
{% endhighlight %}

Should work pretty much out of the gate.

There were more notes here, but the site is dead now:
