Welcome to rstview’s documentation!

This is a simple Django application around docutils to parse reStructuredText markup.


  • Html4 and Html5 writers available;
  • Custom reporter to validate source;
  • Dedicated view to make a page from a rst source;
  • Template tag to directly parse reStructuredText markup;
  • Parser driven by configuration so they can be shared without to define them again and again;
  • Configuration registry to store multiple different parser configurations;
  • Test driven development;


  • Django >= 1.7, <1.10;
  • docutils >= 0.7;
  • Optionnaly (but recommended): Pygments >= 1.2.x to have highlighted syntax in your sourcecode blocks;
