Python wrapper for Pandoc - the universal document converter

Project Description

Pyandoc is a simple Python wrapper for the excellent pandoc utility. It allows you to convert the format of text documents by interacting with a Document object’s attributes. Each supported format is available as a property, and can either read from or written to.


  • Pandoc


Get setup.

import pandoc

Let’s start with a Markdown document:

doc = pandoc.Document()
doc.markdown = '''
# I am an H1 Tag

* bullet point
* more points
* point with [link](!

Now let’s convert that into a ReST document:

>>> print doc.rst

I am an H1 Tag

-  bullet point
-  more points
-  point with `link <>`_!
