Pandoc and Text conversion
- A Few Notes About Pandoc I have now done two projects with Pandoc – this web site and the Ten Steps to Linux Survival book. During the process I’ve come to a few personal “best practices” the hard way. These are not hard-and-fast rules, but instead guide
- Tip: using Pandoc to create truly standalone HTML files What about that “standalone” idea that you expressed with the -s option? What that does is make sure that the HTML is a complete document, beginning with a DOCTYPE tag, an tag, and so on. But if, for example, you have to email the document you just created, or upload it to your company’s document store, then things fall apart. When your reader opens it, they’ll see what you wrote, all right; but it won’t be styled the way you wanted it. Because that pandoc.css file with the styling is back on your machine, in the same directory as the original Markdown file. What you really want is to use embedded CSS; you want the content of pandoc.css to be included along with the prose you wrote in your HTML file. Luckily HTML supports that, and Pandoc provides a way to make it all happen: the
-Hoption, or using its long form,
- I'm wondering where can I edit the default template of LaTeX in pandoc If you do
pandoc -D latexthe template is printed. This works for any format. You could save that template as e.g. 'template.latex' and edit it. You can then point Pandoc to the edited template by doing e.g.
pandoc --template=template.latex. Or you could call it 'default.latex' and place it in Pandoc's data directory. This will make it the default template.
Styles / Output
- Instantly share code, notes, and snippets Add this to your Pandoc HTML documents using
--css pandoc.cssto make them look more awesome. (Tested with Markdown and LaTeX.)
- Pan Am: Simple CSS for Pandoc Pandoc outputs HTML without any styling. That’s boring and ugly. This is some simple CSS for stand-alone Pandoc documents that serves as a good default. Regardless of how your compose your document, we’ll make it look good. This should work with markdown, reStructuredText, textile, LaTeX, MediaWiki markup, or any other format Pandoc supports. It should even work for your semantically structured HTML5 documents, if they’re written well enough.
- Tufte Pandoc CSS Starter files for using Pandoc Markdown with Tufte CSS. This project aims to provide a standard set of project starter files for working with Pandoc and Tufte CSS.
- Classless CSS This is a list of CSS themes and frameworks that do not require you to add their classes to your HTML elements. It means you can quickly style a plain HTML page. This is useful, for example, in prototyping.
- This is the final motherfucking website I’m impressed about what the creator of this site’s inspiration did. What I’m saying is that it’s so, so simple to make sites easier to read. Websites are broken by default—they are functional, high-performing, and accessible, but they’re also fucking ugly. You and all the other web designers out there need to make them not total shit.
- Tacit Tacit is a CSS framework for dummies, who want their web services to look attractive but have almost zero skills in graphic design, just like myself.
- Water.css I commonly make quick demo pages or websites with simple content. For these, I don't want to spend time styling them but don't like the ugliness of the default styles. Water.css is a CSS framework that doesn't require any classes. You just include it in your and forget about it, while it silently makes everything nicer.
- Eisvogel A clean pandoc LaTeX template to convert your markdown files to PDF or LaTeX. It is designed for lecture notes and exercises with a focus on computer science. The template is compatible with pandoc 2.
- Gutenberg Simply include the right stylesheet(s) in your html and load it only for a printer. Gutenberg.css is the base stylesheet but there are themes available in the themes folder.
- List of CSS features required for paged media) This document lists aspects of layout that are of particular importance for paginated display and which could be handled by a future version of CSS. (For example: footnotes and page references.) Some aspects could also be handled to some extent by pre- or post-processors, or by alternative technologies to CSS. (For example: tables of contents or alphabetic indexes.)
- Tufte CSS und Pandoc Ich wollte es außerhalb von RStudio in jedem Texteditor zusammen mit Pandoc, dem universellen Markdown-nach-alles-Konverter laufen lassen. Und da ich sowieso meinen Beitrag zur Kurztagung »Hello, I’m ELIZA.« – Zum 50. Geburtstag eines Chatbots vom 2. Oktober dieses Jahres noch für den Tagungsband in einen Artikel gießen muß, habe beschlossen, dies zu meinem Testprojekt für Tufte CSS und Tufte LaTeX zu machen.
- The Simplest Markdown Resume Workflow Changing the content or styling of a resume or CV is a relatively common event that can be frustrating andtime-consuming. This post outlines the simplest possible workflow where resume content is maintained in a simple markdown file and generating .html, .pdf and .docx output formats is automated with a few lines of code. Styling of the outputs requires maintaining one .css sheet and one reference Word doc, and even if you aren't familiar with such things I can give you some basic steps for re-styling.
- Online Coverter (zumindest Text-Formate)
- Let's find something better than LaTeX Filling my need for a response to Nicky's pro LaTeX article I'd like to explain why LaTeX is a failed project to me. Yes, I have strong feelings about this documentation system, but - just for further reference - not towards its users as I am unfortunately one of them. Description of some downsides of LATEX for certain purposes
- Markdown to static HTML generator and multiple CSS themes for Markdown Converts Markdown files to HTML, with over a dozen builtin themes. Alternative when it comes at least to HTML output, nice collection of themes included.
- ScholarlyMarkdown + ScholDoc ScholarlyMarkdown is a syntax/standard/best-practice of scholarly and academic communication that is web-first, semantic XML-second, and LaTeX/Word a close third. Its main goal is to produce a semantically model of a scholarly article based on Markdown input, and translate it to a variety of formats that is suitable for both online scholarly communication, archiving, and publication. Scholdoc is a command-line utility that converts ScholarlyMarkdown documents into the HTML5, LaTeX, and Docx (OOML) formats. It is intended to facilitate academic writing in a cross-platform, semantic-aware, plaintext format that can be quickly used in modern publishing pipelines. Intresting further development based on pandoc, but yet under development
