Convert Markdown to docx with token substitution and command output substitution

Project description


Table of Contents


Markdown2docx will take a plain text markdown document and create a Word .docx file.

Minimal Usage

from Markdown2docx import Markdown2docx
project = Markdown2docx('README')

You can optionally save a copy in HTML format alongside the .docx output, and print out the default styles.

from Markdown2docx import Markdown2docx
project = Markdown2docx('README')
project.write_html()  # optional
for k, v in project.styles().items():
    print(f'stylename: {k} = {v}')

default styles

These are the default styles applied to the document:

  • stylename: style_table = {'Medium Shading 1 Accent 3'}
  • stylename: style_quote = {'Body Text'}
  • stylename: style_body = {'Body Text'}
  • stylename: style_quote_table = {'Table Grid'}
  • stylename: toc_indicator = {'contents'}

Token substitution and commands

For details about token substitution, refer to

Create a table of contents.

The TOC will be inserted on the first and only the first match where a paragraph contains the TOC indicator. By default this is literally the word 'contents'. When the user opens the .docx document, it will display 'Right-click to update field.'

For developers.

Use a virtualenv. For extra dev tools, use:

$ pip install -e .[dev]
