Extension

Project description

Extension to python-markdown to support LaTeX (rather than html) output.

Authored by Rufus Pollock: <http://www.rufuspollock.org/>

Usage:

  1. Command Line

A script entitled markdown2latex.py is automatically installed. For details of usage see help:

$ markdown2latex.py -h
  1. As a python-markdown extension:

    import markdown
    md = markdown.Markdown(None,
        extensions=['latex'])
    # text is input string ...
    latex_out = md.convert(text)
    
  2. 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)
