A publishing toolchain for Confluence

Project description

Kyber is a publishing tool that allows you to get the most out of your Confluence installation. The export tools built into Confluence can only minimally be customized.

Kyber is written in Python 2.7.


Kyber depends on Beautiful Soup 4, Python Markdown, and WeasyPrint. You can get the first two from apt, but WeasyPrint will require pip. Then again, you can just get them all from pip.

sudo apt-get install python-bs4 python-markdown
sudo pip install weasyprint

A Confluence toolchain will also require Confluence, so you should probably get one if you don’t already have one.


Kyber uses Confluence’s XML-RPC API, so exporting the space manually is not necessary.

You will need export permission on the space which you plan to extract. Pass the space key with -s and the URL of the Confluence wiki with -u; Kyber will export and download the target space for you.

kyber -s LTM -u

Output will be generated in the build/ directory.

If the space key is given without a URL, the last download of that space will be re-run.

kyber -s LTM

The space key must be passed for Kyber to run.

Output Formats

Kyber can be used to generate PDF and HTML output. Since Confluence already generates HTML output, Kyber’s role in this is more about style and presentation, as the output can be customized a great deal more using Kyber than the built-in space exporter.

Multi-page HTML

By default, Kyber produces a multi-page HTML document, largely a repackaged version of Confluence’s built-in export.

This HTML output will appear in:


Single-page hTML

The --single-page parameter to generate a single file document at:



The --pdf parameter will generate a styled PDF using WeasyPrint at:


Kyber is in development and some things aren’t working right or don’t work at all. Please help improve Kyber!
