New in version 1.1.0.
reStructuredText is an easy-to-read, what-you-see-is-what-you-get plaintext markup syntax and parser system.
This widget requires the
docutils package to run. Install it with
pip or include it as one of your deployment requirements.
This widget is highly experimental. The styling and implementation should not be considered stable until this warning has been removed.
Usage with Text¶
text = """ .. _top: Hello world =========== This is an **emphased text**, some ``interpreted text``. And this is a reference to top_:: $ print("Hello world") """ document = RstDocument(text=text)
The rendering will output:
Usage with Source¶
You can also render a rst file using the
document = RstDocument(source='index.rst')
You can reference other documents using the role
:doc:. For example, in the
index.rst you can write:
Go to my next document: :doc:`moreinfo.rst`
It will generate a link that, when clicked, opens the
Base widget used to store an Rst document. See module documentation for more information.
Specifies the background_color to be used for the RstDocument.
New in version 1.8.0.
Font size for the biggest title, 31 by default. All other font sizes are derived from this.
New in version 1.8.0.
Dictionary of all the colors used in the RST rendering.
This dictionary is needs special handling. You also need to call
RstDocument.render()if you change them after loading.
Root path where :doc: will search for rst documents. If no path is given, it will use the directory of the first loaded source file.
Scroll to the reference. If it’s not found, nothing will be done.
For this text:
.. _myref: This is something I always wanted.
You can do:
from kivy.clock import Clock from functools import partial doc = RstDocument(...) Clock.schedule_once(partial(doc.goto, 'myref'), 0.1)
It is preferable to delay the call of the goto if you just loaded the document because the layout might not be finished or the size of the RstDocument has not yet been determined. In either case, the calculation of the scrolling would be wrong.
You can, however, do a direct call if the document is already loaded.
New in version 1.3.0.
preload(filename, encoding='utf-8', errors='strict')¶
Preload a rst file to get its toctree and its title.
The result will be stored in
Force document rendering.
Get the path for this filename. If the filename doesn’t exist, it returns the document_root + filename.
Indicate whether RST parsers errors should be shown on the screen or not.
Encoding to be used for the
It is your responsibility to ensure that the value provided is a valid codec supported by python.
Error handling to be used while encoding the
Title of the current document.
Toctree of all loaded or preloaded documents. This dictionary is filled when a rst document is explicitly loaded or where
preload()has been called.
If the document has no filename, e.g. when the document is loaded from a text file, the key will be ‘’.
