tome - Markup Language for Authors
Tome is a markup language and associated tool suite intended for authors, primarily authors of novels and other relatively simple "chapter books". Tome offers a simple an unobtrusive markup language that allows you to focus on the writing instead of the formatting and styling. The tool suite will parse your markup and generate output in a number of different formats including EPUB, text, and latex (from which you can use the standard latex tool chains to produce DVI, Postscript, or PDF).
Documentation is available in the doc/ folder of the repository, or look for the intro-*.pdf file on the Download page. There is also an example-*.tome document for a really quick start on writing tome documents.
You can install in a couple of ways:
You can get the source by cloning this repository or by downloading the source package from the Download page. Once you have the source, you can use python to install by simply executing:
python setup.py install
This should take care of installing Tome on your system, as well as the templ package which is required by Tome. On Unix like systems, you may need to have superuser priveledges to install the package.
pip install tome
You can also follow the project on twitter @TomeProject for general announcements and updates, or @TomeDevelopment for all commit announcements and development related messages (this is a pretty noisy stream).
