Text based document generation using Python 3; Python3 port of AsciiDoc

AsciiDoc3 is a text document format for writing notes, documentation, articles, books, ebooks, slideshows, web pages, man pages and blogs. AsciiDoc3 files can be translated to many formats including HTML, PDF, EPUB, man page.
AsciiDoc3 is highly configurable: both the AsciiDoc3 source file syntax and the backend output markups (which can be almost any type of SGML/XML markup) can be customized and extended by the user.
