Converts ReStructuredText into JSON

Project Description

Converts ReStructuredText into JSON.

  • Sections are JSON list dictionary elements
  • Section Headers become list titles.
  • Field definitions become key/value representations

Example

Input

Python
------
:age: 22
:typing: dynamic, strong

Java
----
:age: 18
:typing: static, strong

Output

[
    {"title": "Python", "age": 22, "typing": "dynamic, strong"}
    {"title": "Java", "age": 18, "typing": "static, strong"}
]

Usage

$ git clone git@github.com:pydanny/simplicity.git
$ cd simplicity/
$ python simplicity.py sample.rst
[
    {
        "description": "A fun programming language.\n\nUsed to build simplicity!",
        "title": "Python",
        "price": 0.0,
        "typing": "dynamic, strong",
        "age": 22,
        "mascot": "snake"
    },
    {
        "age": 18,
        "typing": "static, strong",
        "mascot": "???",
        "title": "Java"
    },
    {
        "url": "https://github.com",
        "mascot": "Octocat",
        "title": "GitHub"
    }
]
