import ui

from pygments.formatters import HtmlFormatter
from pygments.styles import get_style_by_name
from pygments.lexers import get_lexer_by_name
from pygments.styles import get_all_styles
a pygments helper, wrapper or whatever you want it call it.
should be both a helper class as well as a code previewer
idea 1: (code preview)
add to your tools menu. if called from the tools menu, the current
script is displayed fullscreen. why? i use a dark theme, which is
really good for writing in, but not as great for reviewing code.
its just nice to see it in a lighter theme sometimes for a quick
review. maybe, thats just me. but i like it.
idea 2 (searching for phrases in .py files)
i am writing a filehelper. it includes a search function for
text/phrases specifically in .py files. but not limited to. So when
finished this class will display a given selected file from a
ui.table. The lines where the phrase appears will be hilited.
i am sure can get to the word/phrase level also...but later
idea 3 (is for anyone to use, or at least get started with pygments)
just sometimes if something is presented to you, even it
doesnt work that well, it can still spark ideas.

As i normally use a dark theme, this is ok for me sometimes
