Documentation Status Updates

A tool to write reports.

This is based on a blog post I wrote in 2008 because nobody bothered implementing my idea. So, feel free to read it

Features

Creates reports by merging data (in JSON) and a Jinja template

Example

lois_lane --data example/data.json --template example/template.j2 --output report.rst

The example report is reStructured text but you can just as easily do markdown, HTML, or whatever.

TODO

  • Provide helper sets for different output formats.
  • Support postprocessing chains to generate PDF or whatever

Credits

This package was created with Cookiecutter and the audreyr/cookiecutter-pypackage project template.
