# Configure Minted Color XML

I'm using minted package for code listing, however I don't like some of the colors too much. Is it possible to configure these colors? For example, When I display the colors to view XML color, the keyword appear green which I don't want. Can somebody explain of this is possible?

I'm including the package and including the XML code:

\usepackage{minted}
\inputminted{xml}{codeListings/test.xml.tex}

Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. –  Marco Daniel Apr 28 '13 at 11:38
Since minted uses Pygments lib resp. the pygmentize program for the hard work, this sounds more like a Pygments question. You may read the help file on pygmentize pygmentize -h and the lexers and styles lists -L styles or -L lexers. It is possible to write an individual appearance. –  bloodworks Apr 28 '13 at 11:44

Let me try to show your a way at LaTeX level.

First of all we must analyze the way pygmentize highlight the code and how do we get highlighted code in LaTeX.

If you have something like the following code:

\begin{minted}{xml}
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
xmlns:web="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd"
version="2.5">
<listener>
<listener-class>com.sun.xml.ws.transport.http.servlet.WSServletContextListener</listener-class>
</listener>
<servlet>
<description>JAX-WS endpoint</description>
<display-name>WSServlet</display-name>
<servlet-name>WSServlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.sun.xml.ws.transport.http.servlet.WSServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>WSServlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/services/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
<filter>
<filter-name>CompressionFilter</filter-name>
<filter-class>com.bsiag.fleet.external.calculation.webservice.compression.CompressionFilter</filter-class>
</filter>
<filter-mapping>
<filter-name>CompressionFilter</filter-name>
<url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping>
</web-app>
\end{minted}

Now the contents of the environment is written to the file \jobname.pyg. Now pygmentize get its chance. After running it you will have a file named \jobname.out.pyg with the following contents:

\begin{Verbatim}[commandchars=\\\{\}, ]

\PY{n+nt}{\PYZlt{}/filter\PYZhy{}mapping\PYZgt{}}
\PY{n+nt}{\PYZlt{}/web\PYZhy{}app\PYZgt{}}
\end{Verbatim}

Now we see that every highlight at LaTeX-Level is done by the command \PY which has two mandatory arguments. The first one is the style and the second the highlighted string.

Now we need the definition of \PY and friends:

\def\PY@reset{\let\PY@it=\relax \let\PY@bf=\relax%%
\let\PY@ul=\relax \let\PY@tc=\relax%%
\let\PY@bc=\relax \let\PY@ff=\relax}
\def\PY@tok#1{\csname PY@tok@#1\endcsname}
\def\PY@toks#1+{\ifx\relax#1\empty\else%%
\PY@tok{#1}\expandafter\PY@toks\fi}
\def\PY@do#1{\PY@bc{\PY@tc{\PY@ul{%%
\PY@it{\PY@bf{\PY@ff{#1}}}}}}}
\def\PY#1#2{\PY@reset\PY@toks#1+\relax+\PY@do{#2}}

pygmentize also change special characters to commands to prevent any conflicts:

\def\PYZbs{\char\\}
\def\PYZus{\char\_}
\def\PYZob{\char\{}
\def\PYZcb{\char\}}
\def\PYZca{\char\^}
\def\PYZam{\char\&}
\def\PYZlt{\char\<}
\def\PYZgt{\char\>}
\def\PYZsh{\char\#}
\def\PYZpc{\char\%%}
\def\PYZdl{\char\\$}
\def\PYZti{\char\~}
%% for compatibility with earlier versions
\def\PYZat{@}
\def\PYZlb{[}
\def\PYZrb{]}

Related to the commands above and the character definition the highlighting is done by:

Not to rain on your parade but the documentation shows a way of changing the colours much easier. I would not recommend the above. –  Konrad Rudolph Apr 29 '13 at 8:30
@KonradRudolph: It's a LaTeX way -- I had never said that I recommend this way ;-) -- However you way is much better. –  Marco Daniel Apr 29 '13 at 11:18

You can adjust the colour scheme with the following command:

\usemintedstyle{name}

‹name› is the name of an installed colour scheme. To get a list of those, issue the following command on the command line:

pygmentize -L styles

To create your own styles, follow the instructions in the Pygments documentation.
