General Advice

Read the section Features Not Implemented in the manual first.

Note: if you happen to read this on BitBucket, the error messages some lines below just mean that their implementation doesn’t understand TeX directives. Don’t worry, |rstcontext| does.


As rstConTeXt was developed on texlua, you may expect it to run best with this interpreter. For now the script accepts two command line arguments: the input file and the output file:

$texlua rst_parser.lua doc/documentation.rst man.tex

This should get you the manual converted to a file man.tex which you can through |CONTEXT| now. You will find extended instructions on how to build the manual with some cosmetic improvements in the section Usage of the manual itself.


|rstcontext| is free software and may be redistributed under the terms of the 2-clause BSD license. You should have recieved a copy of this license in a file named “COPYING” in the source tree. If there is no such file then please contact the maintainer (Contact).
