tome - Markup Language for Authors

.. contents:: Contents
    :depth: 2


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:

From Source

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 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.

From PyPi

You can also get tome from PyPi: From there you
can download an appropriate distribution, or you can use
`pip <>`_ to install it with:

    pip install tome

Windows Binary Installer

A GUI installer program for Windows is available for the latest official release.
You can get the installer from the 
`Download section on PyPi <>`_ or
from the 
`Downloads page on bitbucket <>`_.
