Questions tagged [minted]

{minted} is a package that facilitates expressive syntax highlighting in LaTeX using the powerful Pygments library. The package provides options to customize the highlighted source code output using {fancyvrb}. You'll need to install the Python package Pygments (e.g using pip install Pygments). If you want to run your file with pdflatex, then you need to do so with the -shell-escape flag, e.g. pdflatex -shell-escape myfile.tex
