Author tools for Python Magazine

Project Description

Python Magazine uses a special markup language, called Ceres, for formatting articles that are submitted by authors and then worked on by our editorial crew. So that we can support Python folks who want to write their documents in reStructured Text instead, this package adds a pymag sub-command to the cursive command-line tool that converts an article to Ceres, and while doing so reports any problems with the article that might interfere with the magazine’s layout.

To use the command, just type something like this:

$ cursive pymag my_article.rst

Thanks to Doug Hellmann, there is also now a tool to go the other direction, from Ceres to RST: the ceres2rst sub-command will take a typical page.src.txt file and produce an RST equivalent. Invoke it like this:

$ cursive ceres2rst page.src.txt

Report any bugs to the project page on Bitbucket. This package builds on the features of
