Extension to python-markdown to support LaTeX (rather than html) output.
Authored by Rufus Pollock: <http://www.rufuspollock.org/>
1. Command Line. A script entitled markdown2latex.py is automatically installed. For details of usage see help:
$ markdown2latex.py -h
As a python-markdown extension:
>>> import markdown >>> md = markdown.Markdown(None, extensions=['latex']) >>> # text is input string ... >>> latex_out = md.convert(text)
Directly as a module (slight inversion of std markdown extension setup):
>>> import markdown >>> import mdx_latex >>> md = markdown.Markdown() >>> latex_mdx = mdx_latex.LaTeXExtension() >>> latex_mdx.extendMarkdown(md, markdown.__dict__) >>> out = md.convert(text)
