A simple library to convert rtf to text
# striprtf [![Build Status](https://api.travis-ci.org/joshy/striprtf.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/joshy/striprtf)
## Purpose This is a simple library to convert rtf files to python strings. A lot of medical documents are written in rtf format which is not ideal for parsing and further processing. This library converts it to plain old text.
## How to use `python from striprtf.striprtf import rtf_to_text rtf = "some rtf encoded string" text = rtf_to_text(rtf) print(text) `
## How to use online If you don’t want to install, there is also an online version available at https://striprtf.dev
## History [Pyth](https://github.com/brendonh/pyth) was not working for the rtf files I had. The next best thing was this gist: https://gist.github.com/gilsondev/7c1d2d753ddb522e7bc22511cfb08676
Very few additions where made, e.g. better formatting of tables.
## Pushing to PyPi Run commands ` python setup.py sdist bdist_wheel python setup.py sdist upload -r pypi `
