$ easy_install mistune

Cython Feature

Mistune can be faster, if you compile with cython:

$ pip install cython mistune

Basic Usage

A simple API that render a markdown formatted text:

import mistune

mistune.markdown('I am using **markdown**')
# output: <p>I am using <strong>markdown</strong></p>

Mistune has all features by default. You don't have to configure anything.

Renderer

Like misaka/sundown, you can influence the rendering by custom renderers. All you need to do is subclassing a Renderer class.

Here is an example of code highlighting:

import mistune
from pygments import highlight
from pygments.lexers import get_lexer_by_name
from pygments.formatters import HtmlFormatter

class MyRenderer(mistune.Renderer):
    def block_code(self, code, lang):
        if not lang:
            return '\n<pre><code>%s</code></pre>\n' % \
                mistune.escape(code)
        lexer = get_lexer_by_name(lang, stripall=True)
        formatter = HtmlFormatter()
        return highlight(code, lexer, formatter)

renderer = MyRenderer()
md = mistune.Markdown(renderer=renderer)
print(md.render('Some Markdown text.'))

Block Level

Here is a list of block level renderer API:

block_code(code, language=None)
block_quote(text)
block_html(html)
header(text, level, raw=None)
hrule()
list(body, ordered=True)
list_item(text)
paragraph(text)
table(header, body)
table_row(content)
table_cell(content, **flags)

The flags tells you whether it is header with flags['header']. And it also tells you the align with flags['align'].

Span Level

Here is a list of span level renderer API:

autolink(link, is_email=False)
codespan(text)
double_emphasis(text)
emphasis(text)
image(src, title, alt_text)
linebreak()
link(link, title, content)
raw_html(raw_html)
strikethrough(text)

Options

Here is a list of all options that will affect the rendering results:

mistune.markdown(text, escape=True)

md = mistune.Markdown(escape=True)
md.render(text)
  • escape: if set to True, all raw html tags will be escaped.
  • use_xhtml: if set to True, all tags will be in xhtml, for example: <hr />.
