Create a parser:: parser = () Several optional arguments may be passed to modify the parser’s behavior. Please see. reStructuredText (RST, ReST, or reST) is a file format for textual data used primarily in the Python programming language community for technical documentation. It is part of the Docutils project of the Python Doc-SIG ( Documentation. RST is a file format formely created by Python community to write documentation (and so, is part of Docutils). RST files are simple text files with lightweight syntax.

Even if the format isn’t perfect I think it looks very goodit is time to pick a reasonable candidate and go. A single character is returned as-is.

reStructuredText Directives

Here’s the directive in its simplest form: For details of the “classes” attribute, docuti,s the classes entry in The Docutils Document Tree. Transitions separate other body elements. Markup Syntax and Parser Component of Docutils”.

An “image” is a simple picture: Transitions are commonly seen in novels and short fiction, as a gap spanning one or more lines, with or without a type ornament such as a row of asterisks. The application may specify a syntax for the field name.

Interpreted as the topic body. Directives are an extension mechanism for reStructuredText, a way of adding support for new constructs without adding new primary syntax directives may support additional syntax locally.

They become topic elements with “Dedication” or “Abstract” titles or language equivalents immediately following the docinfo element. Note that “another tool” means Winword Use grid tables if this limitation is unacceptable.


Length values without unit are completed with a writer-dependent default e. A comma- or space-separated list of column widths. These documents will be rendered in a separate section which tries to maintain the order and hierarchy of the symbols in the index file. Citation labels are simple reference names case-insensitive single words, consisting of alphanumerics plus internal hyphens, underscores, and periods; no whitespace.

If linkTitle or linkDesc are not the empty string, two additional columns with their contents will be added. The arguments, separated by spaces, can be: This directive has one argument, the path to the image file, and supports several options. Descriptions below list “doctree elements” document tree element names; XML DTD generic identifiers corresponding to syntax constructs.

Arguments are normally single whitespace-separated words. A line block ends with a blank line.

Paragraphs may contain inline markup. While docutills is possible to use the “header” and “footer” directives to create navigational elements for web pages, you should be aware that Docutils is meant to be used for document processing, and that a navigation bar is not typically part of a document. Doctest blocks are interactive Python sessions cut-and-pasted into docstrings. Simple directives may not require any content. For options with no option arguments. Quoted literal blocks are unindented contiguous blocks of text where each line begins dlcutils the same non-alphanumeric printable 7-bit ASCII character [7].


In the example above, a literal block is “embedded” within a sentence that begins in one physical paragraph and ends in another.


Literal block Partially minimized form: Richard Jones on comp. A field name may consist of any characters, but colons “: The inline markup end-string must be separated by at least one character from the start-string. The use of UTF-8 for the output encoding is recommended.

As rts convenience, the “:: Interpreted text is enclosed by single backquote characters: Note that any separating punctuation in the example, a period, “. I no longer need to switch to another tool, so the threshold has fallen to very low.

reStructuredText Directives

Line breaks are not preserved in inline literals. Quick Syntax Overview A reStructuredText document is made up of body or block-level elements, and may be structured into sections. This document was generated on date at time. Backslash escapes can be used to allow arbitrary text to immediately follow inline markup:.

Examples are web pages and FTP sites:.

The vertical bar ” ” is used for vertical lines column separators. Returns the URI argument with whitespace removed.

To emphasisstrong emphasisinline literalsand hyperlink referenceswe can add “title reference”, “index entry”, “acronym”, “class”, “red”, “blinking” or anything else we want.
