The medium-featured, flexible reStructuredText utility
Flexirest is a project that was born out of the authors long-running interest for reStructuredText, and the idea of writing everyday documents like letters, invoices and other simple documents in this way.
Flexirest tries to strike a middle ground between docutils own command line tool chain (rst2html et al), that I find a little to minimalistic and Sphinx, that I find very nice but a little heavy to use for a quickie document like a random letter or some such.
In short, the goal of flexirest is to enable you to use the reST format for everyday documents instead of a word processor or similar with minimal fuzz. Hence you get to stay in the comfy environment of your text editor and tool chain. And you can check in your docs in text format into your version control system of choice. And, if used correctly, you get to reuse a couple of stylings that you only need to create once.
There are some modestly advanced tricks you can do too, primarily writing your own docutils roles, but I wouldn’t consider those the major points of flexirest.
