Pure Python bindings to the online Docverter Pandoc document format conversion API.

Project description

Pure Python bindings to the online Docverter Pandoc document format conversion API. This way, you get access to the power of Pandoc from anywhere, without having to meddle with installing anything. Useful for lightweight applications or when you want to avoid the overhead of a full pandoc installation.



Tested on Python version 2.x.


Pure Python, no dependencies.

Installing it

iPandoc is installed with pip from the commandline:

pip install ipandoc


iPandoc is very simple to use. There is only one function, which converts a piece of text to another document format.

This can be pretty useful, especially for dynamically converting a project README file, which some people write in markdown format for displaying at GitHub, over to ReStructured text for displaying at PyPi (e.g. in your project’s file).

import ipandoc
markdown = open("").read()
rst = ipandoc.convert(text=markdowntext,

Of course, there are many other text formats you can convert between. See API documentation link for more details on usage and options.
