Create a parser:: parser = () Several optional arguments may be passed to modify the parser’s behavior. Please see. reStructuredText (RST, ReST, or reST) is a file format for textual data used primarily in the Python programming language community for technical documentation. It is part of the Docutils project of the Python Doc-SIG ( Documentation. RST is a file format formely created by Python community to write documentation (and so, is part of Docutils). RST files are simple text files with lightweight syntax.

reStructuredText Markup Specification

One possibility is to shift the text by adding an extra space before: Take care when editing text containing anonymous references; adding, removing, and rearranging references require attention to the order of corresponding targets. The number of optional arguments default: Two colons are docutips, and unlikely to be used in common text.

Topics, and therefore tables of contents, may occur anywhere a section or transition may occur. The “csv-table” directive’s “: There must be blank lines before the caption paragraph and before the legend. Warning The “csv-table” directive’s “: There are three types of hyperlink targets: In the text body, there is a source link, a reference name with a trailing underscore or two underscores for anonymous hyperlinks:.

Option Doutils Doctree elements: An external hyperlink’s URI may begin on the same line as the explicit markup start and target name, or it may begin in an indented text block immediately following, rdt no intervening blank lines.

A blank line after a title is optional. The directive argument consists of one or more space-separated class names.

reStructuredText Markup Specification

The directive argument is the path to the file to docitils included, relative to the document containing the doctuils. Inline markup end-strings must be immediately preceded by non-whitespace. The substitution mechanism is cumbersome for simple text styling. The reference text may also be omitted, in which case the URI will be duplicated for use as the reference text. Hey, that’s a printable and a browsable version for free!


There are three logical parts to the directive block: These constructs are equally easy to read in raw and processed forms. This behaviour allows setting targets to individual list items except the first, as a preceding internal target applies to the list as a whole: Enumerators may be arabic numbers, letters, or roman numerals. This can be an empty fst if there is nothing to insert. The term is the word itself, a classifier may be used to indicate the usage of the focutils noun, verb, etc.

Blank lines separate paragraphs from each other and from other body elements. The “code” directive constructs a literal block.

For example, Python uses backslashes in strings to escape certain characters, but not others. The author-supplied title is also used as a “classes” attribute value after being converted into a valid identifier form down-cased; non-alphanumeric characters converted to single hyphens; “admonition-” prefixed. Body Elements Topic Directive Type: Others, such as paragraphs, contain text and inline markup elements.

The pending node causes a transform to be run after the document has been parsed. Explicit hyperlink targets override any implicit targets having the same reference name. It may also be split over multiple lines, in which case the lines are joined with whitespace before being normalized.

Raises ValueError for negative, zero, or non-integer values. But I’m expecting a postal order and I can pay you back as soon as it comes.


Body elements and topics may not contain nested topics. Use grid tables if this limitation is unacceptable. Substitution references may be used to associate ambiguous text with a unique object identifier. See Epigraph above for an analogous example. It’s not easy being green Cell contents are typically single paragraphs, although arbitrary body elements may be represented in most cells. Column span underlines must be complete they must cover all columns and align with established column boundaries.

Sidebars may occur anywhere a section or transition may occur. Text lines containing column span underlines may not contain any other text. See Grid Tables above for a complete table representation.

The numbering is determined by the order of the footnotes, not by the order of the references. Source Edit proc renderTocEntries d: When using auto-symbol footnotes, the choice of output encoding is important. This is an ordinary paragraph, introducing a block quote. Within the docuyils block, a flat field list provides the syntax for metadata.

Interpreted as the sidebar body. There is no parser support for this functionality at present; if a reasonable need for pragma directives is found, they may be supported. Several solutions are possible.


If no base role is explicitly specified, a docutila custom role is automatically used. This will add a paragraph to the document header, which will appear at the top of the generated web page or at the top of every printed page. Sections are identified through their titles, which are marked up with adornment:
