CodeRay is a Ruby library for syntax highlighting.
You put your code in, and you get it back colored; Keywords, strings, floats, comments - all in different colors. And with line numbers.
makes code easier to read and maintain
lets you detect syntax errors faster
helps you to understand the syntax of a language
is what everybody wants to have on their website
solves all your problems and makes the girls run after you
% gem install coderay
CodeRay needs Ruby 1.8.7+ or 1.9.2+. It also runs on Rubinius and JRuby.

Caleb Clausen for writing RubyLexer (see rubyforge.org/projects/rubylexer) and lots of very interesting mail traffic
birkenfeld (Georg Brandl) and mitsuhiku (Arnim Ronacher) for PyKleur, now pygments. You guys rock!
Jamis Buck for writing Syntax (see rubyforge.org/projects/syntax) I got some useful ideas from it.
Doug Kearns and everyone else who worked on ruby.vim - it not only helped me coding CodeRay, but also gave me a wonderful target to reach for the Ruby scanner.
