md2HH - markdown to Haaga-Helia
If you are writing your work in markdown and need to get the document into the official Haaga-Helia format this is for you.
- Install pandoc
Mac OS X:
brew install pandoc
- Download this repository (or just TemplateThesis.docx) and place it the same folder with your markdown file.
Converting your work
Use the following command to convert your file. This will create a docx document with the Haaga-Helia template including table of contents and your content. At the moment you have to manually add the first page and the abstract page to the document (you find them from the TemplateThesis.docx).
pandoc thesis_example.md -f markdown -t docx --reference-docx=TemplateThesis.docx --toc -o ThesisExample.docx
First time you open the document word should ask you:
This document contains fields that may refer to other files. Do you want to update the fields in this document?
Answer Yes to this. It will create the table of contents.
