Build Status ReadTheDocs Coveralls PyPI-Server Conda-Forge Downloads

pyscaffoldext-markdown

PyScaffold extension which replaces reStructuredText formatted files by Markdown format except for Sphinx-related files.

Usage

Just install this package with either pip install pyscaffoldext-markdown or conda install -c conda-forge pyscaffoldext-markdown and note that putup -h shows a new option --markdown. Basically this extension will replace README.rst by a proper README.md and activate the support of Markdown files in Sphinx.

Limitations

Due to limitations of the Markdown syntax compared to reStructuredText, it is necessary to use symbolic links (and some reStructuredText files) to avoid keeping multiple copies of files (such as CHANGELOG.md) meant to be placed at the root of the repository but included in the documentation generated by Sphinx. If you are a Windows user please make sure to configure your system accordingly. The following references might be helpful:

Markdown limitations

Windows users that still face problems after configuring their systems for symbolic links might want to attempt WSL or decide to stick with reStructuredText for (problematic) parts of their documentation files.

Building and Releasing

By default, the tox configuration generated by PyScaffold is compatible with Markdown (as implemented in this extension). This means that (after installing tox with pip or pipx) you can run:

tox -e docs  # to build your documentation
tox -e build  # to build your package distribution
tox -e publish  # to test your project uploads correctly in test.pypi.org
tox -e publish -- --repository pypi  # to release your package to PyPI
tox -av  # to list all the tasks available

Please remember that the command python setup.py release is no longer recommended, so if you don't like tox, please consider using Sphinx and twine directly:

python -m pip install -U pip setuptools wheel sphinx twine
python setup.py bdist_wheel  # to build your package distributions
make -C docs html  # to build your docs
twine upload dist/*  # to release your package to PyPI
