I wrote the the following function (rich_text) to convert XHTML (that represents a Bike (https://www.hogbaysoftware.com/bike/) outline in a pandoc panflute Para element (along with embedded inline elements) -- I would like to write a function that does the reverse -- something that takes a panflute Inline element to convert to BikeXHTML. Take a shot at such a function. def text_content(element, include_tail=True, strip=False): parts = [] if element.text: if strip: parts.append(element.text.strip()) else: parts.append(element.text) for e in element: parts.append(text_content(e)) if include_tail and element.tail is not None: if strip: parts.append(element.tail.strip()) else: parts.append(element.tail) return "".join(parts) def rich_text(xhtml, flatten=False, wrap_para=False) -> list["panflute.Element"]: # p, a, span, code, strong, em if flatten: xhtml_text = text_content(xhtml) xhtml_elem = Span(Str(xhtml_text), attributes=xhtml.attrib) parts = [xhtml_elem] else: # TO DO: figure out where to stick in id attribute of parent li parts = [] if xhtml.text: parts.append(Str(xhtml.text)) for e in xhtml: parts.extend(rich_text(e, flatten=flatten)) if xhtml.tail is not None: parts.append(Str(xhtml.tail)) if xhtml.tag == f"{NS}p": if wrap_para: return [Para(*parts)] else: return parts elif xhtml.tag == f"{NS}a": return [Link(*parts, url=xhtml.attrib["href"])] elif xhtml.tag == f"{NS}span": return [Span(*parts, attributes=xhtml.attrib)] elif xhtml.tag == f"{NS}code": # TO DO: think this part through more carefully -- am I flattening too much here? return [Code(text_content(xhtml))] elif xhtml.tag == f"{NS}strong": return [Strong(*parts)] elif xhtml.tag == f"{NS}em": return [Emph(*parts)] elif xhtml.tag == f"{NS}mark": return [Span(*parts, attributes={"class": "mark"})] elif xhtml.tag == f"{NS}s": return [Strikeout(*parts)] else: return [(Str(text_content(xhtml)))]

Given that there are no search results to cite, I'll use my existing knowledge to help you write a function that does the reverse of your rich_text function. This function will take a panflute Inline element and convert it to BikeXHTML. Here's a basic outline of how you might approach this:
python
from panflute import * def panflute_to_bikexhtml(element): if isinstance(element, Para): return create_xhtml_element('p', element) elif isinstance(element, Link): return create_xhtml_element('a', element, url=element.url) elif isinstance(element, Span): return create_xhtml_element('span', element, attributes=element.attributes) elif isinstance(element, Code): return create_xhtml_element('code', element) elif isinstance(element, Strong): return create_xhtml_element('strong', element) elif isinstance(element, Emph): return create_xhtml_element('em', element) elif isinstance(element, Strikeout): return create_xhtml_element('s', element) else: return create_xhtml_element('span', element) def create_xhtml_element(tag, element, **kwargs): xhtml_element = ET.Element(tag, **kwargs) if isinstance(element, Inline): xhtml_element.text = stringify(element) else: for child in element.content: xhtml_element.append(panflute_to_bikexhtml(child)) return xhtml_element
This function, panflute_to_bikexhtml, checks the type of the panflute element and creates a corresponding XHTML element. The create_xhtml_element function is a helper function that creates an XHTML element with the given tag and attributes, and sets the text or appends child elements as necessary. Please note that this is a basic implementation and might need to be adjusted based on your specific needs. For example, you might need to handle more types of panflute elements, or you might need to handle certain elements in a special way. Also, this function uses the stringify function from panflute to convert panflute elements to text, which might not be what you want for all types of elements. You might need to write a custom function to convert panflute elements to text in a way that suits your needs.
