So I needed to install the lxml parser on a fresh ubuntu trusty 14.x, with python3. I did
$ sudo apt-get install python3.4-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev zlib1g-dev
$ sudo pip3 install lxml
This resulted in a successful install and happily running.
So this is useful for R people. Need to place some code up in HTML, want to have syntax highlighting, don’t want to fight code and pre format tags all day in wordpress? Paste your block into pretty-r:
What this is doing is allowing you to maintain syntactically highlighted and well-formed R source code in your HTML pages, easily. You have already written the source in R, cut and paste it into the form, and it will return a clean set of styled HTML for pasting into any web source you need.
