class pygments.formatter.Formatter(**options)[source]

Converts a token stream to text.

Options accepted:

The style to use, can be a string or a Style subclass (default: “default”). Not used by e.g. the TerminalFormatter.
Tells the formatter to output a “full” document, i.e. a complete self-contained document. This doesn’t have any effect for some formatters (default: false).
If full is true, the title that should be used to caption the document (default: ‘’).
If given, must be an encoding name. This will be used to convert the Unicode token strings to byte strings in the output. If it is “” or None, Unicode strings will be written to the output file, which most file-like objects do not support (default: None).
Overrides encoding if given.
aliases = []

Shortcuts for the formatter

filenames = []

fn match rules

format(tokensource, outfile)[source]

Format tokensource, an iterable of (tokentype, tokenstring) tuples and write it into outfile.


Return the style definitions for the current style as a string.

arg is an additional argument whose meaning depends on the formatter used. Note that arg can also be a list or tuple for some formatters like the html formatter.

name = None

Name of the formatter

unicodeoutput = True

If True, this formatter outputs Unicode strings when no encoding option is given.
