A converter from RML to ODT.
This library implements a converter from Reportlabs RML format to Libreoffices/Open Document Formats ODT format utilizing the z3c.rml parser and odfpy library.
It’s developed by Shoobx (https://shoobx.com) but is open source, and we are happy to accept outside contributions. See DEVELOPMENT.rst for more information.
$ pip install shoobx.rml2odt
There is three ways of using shoobx.rml2odt.
From the command line
Installing shoobx.rml2odt will install a script that can be used from the command line:
rml2odt <infile> <outfile>
Converting files from Python
You can import shoobx.rml2odt as a library and convert files from Python:
>>> from shoobx.rml2odt import rml2odt >>> rml2odt.convertFile(infilepath, outfilepath)
which will convert the file at infilepath and create the ODT file at outfilepath.
Converting an RML string in Python
If your RML data isn’t in a file, but is held in a string, you can import shoobx.rml2odt as a library and convert text data from Python:
>>> from shoobx.rml2odt import rml2odt >>> odt_data = rml2odt.convertString(inputstring).read() >>> with open(outputfile, 'wb') as output: ... output.write(odt_data)
- Add minor support for keepTogether tags, always displaying contents and keeping direct child blockTable elements on the same page
- Add support for spanStyle tags.
- Add support for underline attribute is paraStyle and spanStyle tags.
- Complete overhaul of blockTable styling. This enables the use blockTableStyle and td styling tags. Most text, background and border styling is supported.
- Fix: img must be in a Paragraph otherwise LibreOffice will not show the Image
- Code cleanup and refactor
- Lots of fixes, cleanup, tests added
- Fix: blockSpan handling was completely broken
- Fix: Removed whitespace from para left text, removed tail text of para tag
- Fix: NextPage did not work, it added no page break
- Fix: Do not add tabs to the ODT output, reportlab does not either. There’s a special tab tag that is used by our custom numbering.
- Fix: Do not fail on missing value of the color tag
- Fix: Support pre and xpre tags, make sure whitespace is not squashed
- Fix: Copy the main or Main pageTemplate to Standard to make ODT at least somehow happy. Reportlab uses main as conventional default. This is still just a workaround. Supporting custom templates set in a story will take more efforts.
- Copied all z3c.rml RML test inputs, blacklisted a lot, listed shortcomings.
- Fix: Next paragraph text strip for custom bullets broken by 0.4.3.
- Fix: bullet numbering ignored value as start
- Fix: support all custom li bullets (l, L, o, O, r, R)
- Fix: the br tag used a class variable to remember whether it added the style BreakJustify.
- Fix span tag handling. It literally discarded most text.
- Fix: Text following a comment tag was discarded.
- Fix: 3+ whitespace was replaced with nothing. Caused text to miss spaces.
- More indentation fixes.
- Added support for O format lists (First, Second, Third)
- Add support to have bullet lists in number lists and vice versa
- Convert tables in lists to lists in lists
- Support for blockSpan in table styles.
- Handle tail text of comments
- Supporting RML blockSpan styles for tables
- Take the maximum, not the first when calculating the number of columns
- Many many formatting fixes including an almost complete rewrite of list handling and list styles.
- Cleaned up the public API.
- Added basic docs.
