API to perform 'Show HTML' directly from Python?
I like to develop my workflows purely in Python (so, I can write unit tests for them on my Mac (using mocks for editor, workflow, etc), get the plugin working, then wrap it in json and deploy to Editorial).
Anyway, I was wondering if the 'Show HTML' workflow action was available as a call from Python? This would enable my latest workflow to be pure Python (and makes wrapping up the json easier, rather than have to add the 'Show HTML" action as a special case).
As another Martin :-) I'd like to take HTML generated and post-process it (also in Python) in the same workflow.
This page shows how to take Markdown (not MultiMarkdown) and convert it:
but I'd really rather have MMD.
So I guess it's a case of building a multipart workflow. :-(
No, the Show HTML action doesn't have a Python equivalent, sorry.
As a matter of interest how would people suggest I post-process the HTML that is generated? Some kind of XML parser? Or just use regular expression matching?
