Project Description

A reStructuredText to DocBook command-line converter using Python’s docutils, with an included Sphinx builder.

Using the command-line utility

rst2db <filename> [-e root_element] [-o output_file] [-t template_file]

Only the filename to process is required. All other settings are optional.


-e root_element
 set the root element of the resulting DocBook file. If this is not specified, then ‘section’ will be used.
-o output_file set the output filename to write. If this is not specified, then output will be sent to stdout.

Using the Sphinx builder


To build docbook output with Sphinx, add abstrys.docbook.builder to the extensions list in

extensions = [
   ... other extensions here ...

There are one configurable parameter for that correspond to parameters:

 default root element for a file-level document. Default is ‘section’.

Running a build

The builder is registered with the name ‘docbook’, so to run a build that uses the builder, run sphinx-build with -b docbook.
