Installation of this package is done just like any other Python package.
See the INSTALL file for details.

Once you have plasTeX installed, you can use the command-line utility,
called "plastex" just like latex or pdflatex.  For example, if you
have a LaTeX file called mybook.tex, simple run:

    plastex mybook.tex

This will convert mybook.tex into XHTML (the default renderer).  Of course,
there are many options to control the execution of plastex.  Simply type
"plastex" on the command line without options or arguments to see the
full list of command-line options.

It is also possible to write your own command-line utilities that leverage
the power of the plasTeX framework.  In fact, the essence of the "plastex"
command can be written in just one line of code (not including the Python
import commands):

    import sys
    from plasTeX.TeX import TeX
    from plasTeX.Renderers.XHTML import Renderer

plasTeX is really much more than just a LaTeX-to-other-format converter 
though.  See the documentation at for a complete
view of what it is capable of.

plasTeX – A LaTeX to HTML trans­la­tor

Plas­tex is a Python-based LaTeX doc­u­ment pro­cess­ing frame­work. It gives DOM-like ac­cess to a LaTeX doc­u­ment, as well as the abil­ity to gen­er­ate mulit­ple out­put for­mats (e.g. HTML, DocBook, tBook, etc.).
