I would like to know how you can syntax highlighting in a LaTex document for codes.

An example of such document is this guide about a Pyhton library and Page 9.

Perhaps, the document is not built by LaTex. Perhaps, by Markdown and with some addons.

I'm guessing that you can look at Prettify. You might be able to create a custom CSS file for LaTeX and get Prettify set up for it...

I use this plug-in on my website:

StackOverflow also uses it!

The listings package is one way to include syntax-highlighted source code listings in a LaTeX document. For other options, see the relevant entry in the TeX FAQ.

listings unfortunately has several shortcomings in that it only highlights what it thinks might be nice to highlight instead of having a grammar for the languages. It does weird things on floating point numbers in exponential notation, for example. That being said, I don't know a better replacement, sadly. – Joey Jul 30 '09 at 14:14
