Pyth – Python text markup and conversion
Pyth is intended to make it easy to convert marked-up text between different common formats.
Marked-up text means text which has:
- Bold, italic, and underlined text
- Bullet lists
- Simple tables
- Very little else
Formats I initially want to support are:
- pdf (output)
These three formats cover web, Word / OpenOffice, and print.
- Ignore unsupported information in input formats (e.g. page layout)
- Ignore font issues — output in a single font.
- Ignore specific text sizes — support relative sizes (bigger, littler) only. Output in a single base size.
- Have no dependencies unless they are written in Python, and work
- Make it easy to add support for new formats, by using an architecture based on ***plugins*** and ***adapters***.
