Project Description

SpeXcript – makes your spex script beautiful

SpeXcript is a markup and layout system for scripts of theater plays or musicals etc. I originally made it for Fyysikkospeksi, a spex made every other year by mostly Engineering Physics undergraduate and graduate students at Aalto University. For now, it has only been for our internal use, but I am now (2015) releasing it for free and as open source. It would make me happy if someone else finds this useful.

Any feedback or suggestions are very welcome:

Getting Started


  • Python 3.4+ (May work with older versions, but no official support)


spexcript can be installed with pip (make sure you have it installed):

$ pip install spexcript

or directly from the source code:

$ git clone
$ cd spexcript
$ python install

Basic Usage

The documentation for the markup language itself is on its way, but if you have a spexcript file, say myspex.sxt, you can lay it out as pdf from the command line as follows:

$ python -m spexcript myspex.sxt

The interface and documentation will be further improved in the future.
