This is a fork of which adresses a few HTML 5 validation errors and warnings.

Docutils Tiny HTML Writer is another docutils html writer, with very light html output. It will create mainly for use in other project’s like doc generators or web publishers, which want to use their own html headers and footers.

One of possible use:

from docutils.core import publish_string, publish_parts
from docutils_tinyhtml import Writer
from sys import version_info

if version_info[0] < 3:
    from io import open

writer = Writer()
with open("README.rst", encoding="utf-8") as f:
    rst =

# store full html output to html variable
html = publish_string(source=rst,
                      settings_overrides={'link': 'link', 'top': 'top'})

# disable system message in html, no in stderr
parts = publish_parts(source=rst,
                      settings_overrides={'no_system_messages': True})

# store only html body
body = parts['html_title'] + parts['body'] + parts['html_line'] + \
    parts['html_footnotes'] + parts['html_citations'] + \

Or you can use rst2html-tiny command tool like standard rst2html:

~$ rst2html-tiny README.rst > README.html       # generate html from reStructured text
~$ rst2html-tiny -h                             # help output
