Aizan's Pandoc Config
Welcome to this Git repository. I recently started learning how to couple my writing workflow with Markdown with Pandoc to generate HTML and PDF files. Recently I customized by Vim heavily so that it feels homey for writing.
Warning. This repository is still a work in progress.
Clone this repo
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:aixnr/pandoc-config.git ~/.pandoc
This command downloads this repository to the
~/.pandoc directory. Congrats!
Take a look at the
mdr.sh file. To use it, issue this command:
$ ./mdr.sh input.md output.html
Note: Make sure
mdr.sh is executable. Run
chmod +x mdr.sh first.
This takes the first variable as input (a Markdown file) and the second variable as output (an HTML file). Further customization of this
bash script is possible. For example:
#!/bin/bash pandoc "$1" --smart --self-contained \ --css=/home/fiona/.pandoc/$3.css --highlight-style=haddock \ --output="$2"
fiona is the
$USER of my box. It takes the third variable
$3, which is a CSS file that's present in my
~/.pandoc folder. As you can see, currently I have 2 CSS files.
$ find . | entr ./mdr.sh input.md output.html
This command requires
entr to be installed (available on
brew as well). It is a simple mechanism to automatically generate
entr sees changes in the
input.md, it will spit out the updated
output.html. However, this does not do browser live-reload (a.k.a hot-reload), so a user must reload the browser page manually.
To make it easier, simply move
/usr/local/bin and refresh with
hash -r. Now, the
mdr.sh can be invoked anywhere!
