Carbon - export your code as pretty images


carbon is a simple tool that allows you to export a code snippet as a pretty image - either PNG or SVG.

You may have seen such exported images on various social media as it's quite handy for code infographics/presentations. Sadly as it's an image you can't select the code so its uses are limited.

For webpages you should be using Pygments or frontend tools like Prism or Shiki.

class Entries(LanguagePage):
    def get_queryset(self):
        queryset = super().get_queryset()
        return queryset.filter(category__slug=self.kwargs['category']).exclude(hidden=True)

    def get_context_data(self, **kwargs):
        context = super().get_context_data(**kwargs)
            category = Article.objects.get(slug=self.kwargs['category'])
        except Article.DoesNotExist:
            raise http.Http404
            context['category'] = category
        return context
