rinohtype supports Python 3.3 and up. Use pip to install the latest version of rinohtype and its dependencies:

pip install rinohtype

If you plan on using rinohtype as an alternative to LaTeX, you will want to install Sphinx as well:

pip install Sphinx

See Sphinx Builder in the Quickstart guide on how to render Sphinx documents with rinohtype.


For parsing reStructuredText and CommonMark documents, rinohtype depends on docutils and myst-parser respectively. pip takes care of these requirements automatically when you install rinohtype.

If you want to include images other than PDF, PNG or JPEG, you need to install Pillow additionally.
