wt.textblock module


The wt.textblock module provides a TemplateCode sub-class which helps with dynamically creating paragraphs of text.


This class is used for creating paragraphs of HTML out of a text string. Double-newlines in the string (i.e. blank lines) are treated as paragraph separators. Single newlines are converted to <br> tags. Newlines of the form \n or \r\n are supported.



import jon.wt.textblock as textblock

class body(textblock.TextBlock):
  def text(self):
    return self.outer.article["body"]

Note the use of the = literal encoding specifier, because the output is raw HTML (including <br> tags).

class: TextBlock(TemplateCode)

Public Instance Variables


This variable is set to the HTML code for each paragraph in turn by the main() method.

Public Methods


Returns: string

This method may be overridden by subclasses. It returns a string containing the text data to be turned into HTML paragraphs. The default implementation just returns the empty string.

main(self, template)

template: string

This method may be overridden by subclasses. It calls text() to fetch the text data and splits it into paragraphs. Each paragraph in turn is converted to HTML, placed into the paragraph attribute, and process() called.
