A simple Python API for generating RestructuredText.
reStructuredText is a powerful human-centric markup language that is well defined, flexible, with powerful tools that make writing and maintaining text easy and pleasurable. Humans can edit reStructuredText without the aide of complex editing tools, and the resulting source is easy to manipulate and process.
As an alternative and a supplement, RstCloth is a Python API for writing well formed reStructuredText programatically.

Repo is based on thclark/python-library-template:
- black style
- sphinx docs with some examples and automatic build
- pre-commit hooks
- tox tests
- travis ci + cd
- code coverage
You need to install pre-commit to get the hooks working. Do:
pip install pre-commit pre-commit install
Once that's done, each time you make a commit, the following checks are made:
- valid github repo and files
- code style
- import order
- PEP8 compliance
- documentation build
- branch naming convention
Upon failure, the commit will halt. Re-running the commit will automatically fix most issues except:
- The flake8 checks... hopefully over time Black (which fixes most things automatically already) will negate need for it.
- You'll have to fix documentation yourself prior to a successful commit (there's no auto fix for that!!).
You can run pre-commit hooks without making a commit, too, like:
pre-commit run black --all-files
# -v gives verbose output, useful for figuring out why docs won't build pre-commit run build-docs -v
Please raise an issue on the board (or add your $0.02 to an existing issue) so the maintainers know what's happening and can advise / steer you.
Create a fork of rstcloth, undertake your changes on a new branch, (see
.pre-commit-config.yamlfor branch naming conventions). To run tests and make commits, you'll need to do something like:
git clone <your_forked_repo_address> # fetches the repo to your local machine cd rstcloth # move into the repo directory pyenv virtualenv 3.6.9 myenv # Makes a virtual environment for you to install the dev tools into. Use any python >= 3.6 pyend activate myenv # Activates the virtual environment so you don't screw up other installations pip install -r requirements-dev.txt # Installs the testing and code formatting utilities pre-commit install # Installs the pre-commit code formatting hooks in the git repo tox # Runs the tests with coverage. NB you can also just set up pycharm or vscode to run these.
Adopt a Test Driven Development approach to implementing new features or fixing bugs.
rstclothmaintainers where to make your pull request. We'll create a version branch, according to the roadmap, into which you can make your PR. We'll help review the changes and improve the PR.
Once checks have passed, test coverage of the new code is >=95%, documentation is updated and the Review is passed, we'll merge into the version branch.
Once all the roadmapped features for that version are done, we'll release.
The process for creating a new release is as follows:
- Check out a branch for the next version, called
- Create a Pull Request into the
- Undertake your changes, committing and pushing to branch
- Ensure that documentation is updated to match changes, and increment the changelog. Pull requests which do not update documentation will be refused.
- Ensure that test coverage is sufficient. Pull requests that decrease test coverage will be refused.
- Ensure code meets style guidelines (pre-commit scripts and flake8 tests will fail otherwise)
- Address Review Comments on the PR
- Ensure the version in
setup.pyis correct and matches the branch version.
- Merge to master. Successful test, doc build, flake8 and a new version number will automatically create the release on pypi.
- Go to code > releases and create a new release on GitHub at the same SHA.
Building documents automatically
The documentation will build automatically in a pre-configured environment when you make a commit.
In fact, the way pre-commit works, you won't be allowed to make the commit unless the documentation builds, this way we avoid getting broken documentation pushed to the main repository on any commit sha, so we can rely on builds working.
Building documents manually
If you did need to build the documentation
doxgen. On a mac, that's
brew install doxygen; other systems may differ.
Install sphinx and other requirements for building the docs:
pip install -r docs/requirements.txt
Run the build process:
sphinx-build -b html docs/source docs/build
