restview

|buildstatus| |appveyor| |coverage|_

A viewer for ReStructuredText documents that renders them on the fly.

Pass the name of a ReStructuredText document to restview, and it will launch a web server on localhost:random-port and open a web browser. Every time you reload the page, restview will reload the document from disk and render it. This is very convenient for previewing a document while you're editing it.

You can also pass the name of a directory, and restview will recursively look for files that end in .txt or .rst and present you with a list.

Finally, you can make sure your Python package has valid ReStructuredText in the long_description field by using ::

restview --long-description

Synopsis
