Project description


Text based document generation using Python 3.x; Python3 port of AsciiDoc

AsciiDoc3 is a text document format for writing notes, documentation, articles, books, ebooks, slideshows, web pages, man pages and blogs. AsciiDoc3 files can be translated to many formats including HTML, PDF, EPUB, man page. AsciiDoc3 is highly configurable: both the AsciiDoc3 source file syntax and the backend output markups (which can be almost any type of SGML/XML markup) can be customized and extended by the user.


AsciiDoc3 is written in 100% pure Python3. So you need a Python interpreter (version 3.x or later) to execute Python is installed by default in most Linux distributions. You can download Python from the official website

Current AsciiDoc3 version tested on Ubuntu Linux 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) with Python 3.6, Debian Siduction with Python 3.6.5+, and other platforms, too.
