WPygments - Wordpress syntax highlighter based on Pygments

Server side syntax highlighter based on Pygments highlighter software.

Get the plugin at


To use this plugin you need pygments in your server:

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
easy_install Pygments

That's all. Now you can download the plugin and install it in your Wordpress.


Once you get installed the plugin the usage is straightforward. just enclose your code between tokens named with the corresponding lang:



See "Languages and filetypes supported" section to know available languages.


Tokens support a few parameters (all optionals):

[php style="manni" linenumbers="table"]....[/php]

style="manni" defines code styling. Currently are 22 available styles.
Default styling is default wich is very nice, but maybe you like other styles. see "Color styles" section.

If you set "linenumbers" to inline or table, the line numbers will be added as independent table column or as part of the line.


//comment line
var foo = "foo";
var bar = function(){
	var baz;

Outputs highlighted js with default style, and no line numbers.

[javascript style="monokai" linenumbers="inline"]
//comment line
var foo = "foo";
var bar = function(){
	var baz;

Outputs highlighted js with monokai style with line numbers (as part of the line).

[javascript style="monokai" linenumbers="table"]
//comment line
var foo = "foo";
var bar = function(){
	var baz;

Outputs highlighted js with monokai style with line numbers (as new column).
