PyScaffold extension which replaces reStructuredText by Markdown

Project description


PyScaffold extension which replaces reStructuredText formatted files by Markdown format except for Sphinx-related files.


Just install this package with pip install pyscaffoldext-markdown and note that putup -h shows a new option --markdown. Basically this extension will replace README.rst by a proper and activate the support of Markdown files in Sphinx. Due to limitations of the Markdown syntax compared to reStructuredText, the main documentation files still use reStructuredText by default.

Remember to install wheel version 0.31 or higher and use twine to upload your package to PyPI instead of python release for this to work, e.g.:

python sdist bdist_wheel
twine upload dist/*


This project has been set up using PyScaffold 3.1rc1. For details and usage information on PyScaffold see
