Literate programming with reStructuredText

Project description


The idea is that you do not document programs (after the fact), but write documents that contain the programs.

—John Max Skaller in a Charming Python interview

PyLit (Python Literate) provides a plain but efficient tool for literate programming: a bidirectional text/code converter.


  • Dual Source
  • Markup with reStructuredText
  • Code in any language
  • Python Doctest Support
