[ACCEPTED]-How to generate Microsoft Word documents using Sphinx-documentation-generation
The solution I use is singlehtml builder 4 like andho mentioned in the comment, then 3 convert the html to docx using pandoc. The 2 following sample assumes the generated html 1 would be located at _build/singlehtml/index.html
make singlehtml cd _build/singlehtml/ pandoc -o index.docx index.html
To convert files in restructured text to 10 MSdoc, I use
rst2odt and next
unoconv. Look next script:
#!/bin/sh rst2odt $1 $1.odt unoconv -f doc $1.odt rm $1.odt
rst2odt you can use your own stylesheet:
unoconv comes 8 with OpenOffice and also allows to apply 7 an Open Office style (template) during the 6 conversion. Simply edit a converted document, change 5 styles, add headers and footers, save that 4 as an ODF Text Document Template (OTT) and 3 use this as part of the conversion, like:
unoconv -f doc -t template.ott $1.odt
to 2 use that template for various conversions 1 later on.
I realize this is an old question, but I 12 found that LibreOffice supports the following 11 way of doing conversion (assuming soffice.exe 10 is in your path):
soffice.exe --invisible --convert-to doc myInputFile.odt
Some things I have read 9 say to use the --headless option rather 8 than --invisible. Both seem to work on 7 Windows.
You can start with the rst2odt.py 6 script and then do the above to convert 5 to an MS Word document.
Here is a link with 4 additional start up options for LibreOffice: http://help.libreoffice.org/Common/Starting_the_Software_With_Parameters
Here 3 is a link with file types supported by OpenOffice 2 which, I believe, LibreOffice should also 1 support: http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/wiki/Framework/Article/Filter/FilterList_OOo_3_0
This answer is not a command line solution 8 and it is not obviously the best, but it 7 simply works for me and save my time. After 6 generating html file 1, you can open the 5 generated html with a browser and copy the 4 entire page (Crtl + a and Ctrl+ c) and then 3 run Microsoft Office(or use live version 2 if you don't have Microsoft Windows, like 1 me) and paste (Ctrl+v) to it.
The best option might be rst -> odt -> doc
- Convert the sphinx documents into openoffice format.
- Then convert open the odt with openoffice and saved to Word. But I don't know how to do this automatically.
This is a workaround using Calibre (https://calibre-ebook.com), which 5 includes a powerful converter. This worked 4 well and most of the formatting are preserved:
- Generate epub output in Sphinx
- Import epub output into Calibre and then convert epub to docx using inbuilt ebook converter.
Answer 3 is too late for the original question, but 2 people looking at the same problem may find 1 this useful.
