  Description     : A general purpose syntax highlighter in pure Go

 Chroma takes source code and other structured text and converts it into
 syntax highlighted HTML, ANSI-coloured text, etc.
 .
 Chroma is based heavily on Pygments (http://pygments.org/), and includes
 translators for Pygments lexers and styles.


Reasoning: Required by Hugo 0.28, which "brings blistering fast and native
 syntax highlighting.  A big thank-you to Alec Thomas for taking on this
 massive task of porting the popular python highlighter Pygments to Go."
