======================================== 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: * Paragraphs * Headings * Bold, italic, and underlined text * Hyperlinks * Bullet lists * Simple tables * Very little else Formats I initially want to support are: * xhtml * rtf * pdf (output) These three formats cover web, Word / OpenOffice, and print. Design principles ================= * 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*. Examples ======== See http://github.com/brendonh/pyth/tree/master/examples/ Unit tests ========== The sources contains some unit tests (written using python unittest module) in the 'tests' directory. To run the tests we can either run them individually as python script, either use `python nose`_. If using nose then we just need to go into the tests directory and invoke nosetest from there (make sure that pyth module is in PYTHONPATH). .. _python nose: http://code.google.com/p/python-nose/
