Formats

The book is written in Markdown and converted to PDF using pandoc. A few LaTex specific commands have been placed in the Markdown file to help with PDF-generation (namely for the title page and to create page breaks between chapters).

To generate PDF, Kindle and EPUB formats, download and install pandoc, a universal document converter.

Generating the PDF

pandoc includes markdown2pdf to generate the PDF using a variation of https://github.com/claes/pandoc-templates:

#!/bin/sh
paper=a4paper
hmargin=3cm
vmargin=3cm
fontsize=11pt

mainfont=Verdana
sansfont=Tahoma
monofont="Courier New"
columns=onecolumn
geometry=portrait
nohyphenation=true


markdown2pdf --xetex --template=template/xetex.template \
-V paper=$paper -V hmargin=$hmargin -V vmargin=$vmargin \
-V mainfont="$mainfont" -V sansfont="$sansfont" -V monofont="$monofont" \
-V geometry=$geometry -V columns=$columns -V fontsize=$fontsize \
-V nohyphenation=$nohyphenation en/redis.md -o redis.pdf

Generating the EPUB

Use the following command (modified from the one found at http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3502033) to generate the EPUB:

pandoc -f markdown -t epub --epub-metadata=en/metadata.xml \
--template=template/xetex.template -V paper=$paper \
-V hmargin=$hmargin -V vmargin=$vmargin -V mainfont="$mainfont" \
-V sansfont="$sansfont" -V monofont="$monofont" -V geometry=$geometry \
-V columns=$columns -V fontsize=$fontsize -V nohyphenation=$nohyphenation \
en/redis.md -o redis.epub
