Effortless generation of PDF, HTML & ODT documents from RST (ReStructuredText)

Project description

A simple way to produce short-to-medium document using reStructuredText

Multi-format themes
Render the same document in HTML, ODT, PDF keeping the main visual identity
Unified interface
  • Tired of switching between rst2* tools having different arguments or behavior ?
  • Would like to not lose code-blocks or some rendering options switching the output format ?

This tool try to address this

Make your own theme
TODO: templates will be customizable easily (say, probably colors only)

How to use it


You’ll need rst2pdf to use all the features, other rst2* tools are coming from docutils.


mkrst [-h] [--html] [--pdf] [--odt] [--theme THEME]
             [--themes-dir THEMES_DIR]
optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
--html Generate HTML output
--pdf Generate PDF output
--odt Generate ODT output
--theme THEME Use a different theme
--themes-dir THEMES_DIR
 Change the folder searched for theme
popo:~/2lazy2rest% ./mkrst test_page.rst --html --pdf
Using ./themes/default
  html:  test_page.html
   pdf:  test_page.pdf


Make a copy of themes/default, edit to your needs the copy and use the –theme option with the name of your copy, that’s All !


popo:~/2lazy2rest% cp -r themes/default themes/red
popo:~/2lazy2rest% sed -si 's/#FEFEFE/red/g' themes/red/html/stylesheet.css
popo:~/2lazy2rest% ./mkrst test_page.rst --html --theme red


  • ODT style is unfinished
  • PDF & HTML still needs more ReST coverage
  • No skin generation from template yet
