1.How to get Syntax-highlight Python code on screen while running, e.g. this:
import random print 'hello' print random.randint(42)
will turn into this Syntax-highlight Python code on screen while running?
Is it possible to control(copy&paste ect) editor with code's function?
How to read a .py file into a string or list?

I do not understand your question on syntax highlighting however,
random.randint()required two parameters, not just one.
For the other questions...
clipboardmodule enables your scripts to copy and paste and the
editormodule enables them to get and set Editor content.
with open('python_code.py') as in_file: python_code = in_file.read() # copies file contents to a str
Many thanks. I mean markdown example, is there any simple method to get syntax hightlight like this:
```python print 'hello' ```

i think you may need to be a little more descriptive... tell us what you are trying to achieve.
- do you want the html source code of syntax highlighted Python?
- or, you want to display highlighted Python within pythonista, but outside of the editor?
- do you want this "on screen" as in in the console, or in a window?
- when you say while running, do you mean you are trying to debug code, and would like a highlighted line source debugger?
The first three issues, my answers are yes, which method is the simplest? how to make it? Thanks a lot.

Here's an example for showing syntax-highlighted code (that is in the clipboard):
import ui from pygments import highlight from pygments.lexers import PythonLexer from pygments.formatters import HtmlFormatter from pygments.styles import get_style_by_name import clipboard # Syntax-highlight code in clipboard: code = clipboard.get() html_formatter = HtmlFormatter(style='colorful') highlighted_code = highlight(code, PythonLexer(), html_formatter) styles = html_formatter.get_style_defs() html = '<html><head><style>%s</style></head><body>%s</body></html>' % (styles, highlighted_code) # Present result in a WebView: webview = ui.WebView(frame=(0, 0, 500, 500)) webview.scales_page_to_fit = False webview.load_html(html) webview.present('sheet')
A thousand thanks.
