rst2odp: rst to LibreOffice impress

This package contains a Python script (rst2odp) to convert reStructuredText to LibreOffice Impress (rst2odp). It also includes a general python library (odplib/preso.py) for creating Impress files. Now with Python 3 support!

Installation

To build and install this Python package, you will first need to build/install lxml, docutils, pygments, and PIL. After you have done this, follow these steps:

$ python setup.py install

Usually it is run like so:

$ rst2odp path/to/rstfile.rst output.odp

(use --traceback -r 3 for debug)

Styling is supported with the --template-file switch, just pass it an .otp template file.
