class nikola.packages.pygments_better_html.BetterHtmlFormatter(**options)

Bases: pygments.formatters.html.HtmlFormatter

Format tokens as HTML 4 <span> tags, with alternate formatting styles.

  • linenos = 'table' renders each line of code in a separate table row

  • linenos = 'ol' renders each line in a <li> element (inside <ol>)

Both options allow word wrap and don’t include line numbers when copying.

aliases = ['html']

Shortcuts for the formatter

filenames = ['*.html', '*.htm']

fn match rules

format_unencoded(tokensource, outfile)

Format code and write to outfile.

The formatting process uses several nested generators; which of them are used is determined by the user’s options.

Each generator should take at least one argument, inner, and wrap the pieces of text generated by this.

Always yield 2-tuples: (code, text). If “code” is 1, the text is part of the original tokensource being highlighted, if it’s 0, the text is some piece of wrapping. This makes it possible to use several different wrappers that process the original source linewise, e.g. line number generators.

get_style_defs(arg=None, wrapper_classes=None)

Generate CSS style definitions.

Return CSS style definitions for the classes produced by the current highlighting style. arg can be a string or list of selectors to insert before the token type classes. wrapper_classes are a list of classes for the wrappers, defaults to the cssclass option.
