Convert Pandoc Markdown-style footnotes into sidenotes
This is a simple Pandoc filter to convert footnotes into a format that can be consumed by Tufte CSS. On the whole, this project weighs in at well under 100 lines of code. Check out SideNote.hs if you're curious how it works.
It's used by calling
pandoc --filter pandoc-sidenote. To see it in action, see
Tufte Pandoc CSS, a project which uses it. In particular, take a look at the
Makefile included in that project.
The core functionality is also exposed as a library, which can be called by Haskell applications such as Hakyll.
pandoc-sidenote is build against a specific version of Pandoc. This table maps
pandoc versions to
If a newer version of
pandoc has been released, the Stack build manifest
will need to be adjusted for that version, and the project then rebuilt.
pandoc-sidenote is on Hackage and can thus be installed using
cabal install pandoc-sidenote
If you're on OS X, you can install the
pandoc-sidenote binary from my Homebrew
brew install jez/formulae/pandoc-sidenote
Otherwise, you'll have to install from source. This project is written in Haskell and built using Stack. If you're new to Haskell, now's a perfect time to wet your toes! Go install Stack first, then run these commands:
git clone https://github.com/jez/pandoc-sidenote cd pandoc-sidenote # this is going to be reaaally long the first time stack build # copy the compiled binary onto your PATH stack install
Notes to myself
Side note: I run this command to generate the zip files attached to releases that are downloaded by the Homebrew formula:
It would be nice to get GitHub Actions set up to build and publish releases for each tagged commit automatically.
I run this command to publish packages to Hackage:
# First, edit `package.yaml` to remove `-Werror`, then: stack upload .
