Textile parsing from within Flask

Project description

The Python port of Dean Allen's humane web text generator packaged for use with Flask.

pip install flask-textile

Import into our project:

from flask_textile import Textile

And then...

app = Flask(__name__)
textile = Textile(app)

Or, if one prefers, with an application factory:

textile = Textile()

def create_app(config_class=Config):
    app = Flask(__name__)

Simple usage within a Jinja2 template:

{{ text|textile }}

Or use as a filter:

{% filter textile %}
h2. Textile

* is a _shorthand syntax_ used to generate valid HTML
* is *easy* to read and *easy* to write
* can generate complex pages, including: headings, quotes, lists, tables and figures

Textile integrations are available for "a wide range of platforms":/article/.
{% endfilter %}

Additionally, Flask-Textile offers a static method, parse(), which returns a raw HTML sting from Textile input—i.e. the direct output of python-textile. (Useful for working with Textile outside of a template):

from flask_textile import Textile

# Or if you already have an instance laying around...
app = Flask(__name__)
textile = Textile(app)
