Version 0.2.0

A node module that wraps the Pandoc tool, allowing you to covert between markup types in node.


node-pandoc is tested against Node v0.6.x and v0.7.x.


At a very basic level this library allows you to convert one markup type into one or many. Supported markup types depends on how you installed Pandoc.

Convert markdown into HTML

var pandoc = require('pandoc');

pandoc.convert('markdown', mdText, [ 'html' ], function(result, err) {
  console.log(result.html); //outputs html
  console.log(result.markdown); //outputs the original markdown

Convert HTML into reStructredTest and plain text

var pandoc = require('pandoc');

pandoc.convert('html', htmlText, [ 'rst', 'plain' ], function(result, err) {
  console.log(result.rst); //outputs the reStructured Text
  console.log(result.plain); //outputs the plain text
  console.log(result.html); //outputs the HTML text

Deal with errors (err is the exit status code from pandoc)

var pandoc = require('pandoc');

pandoc.convert('invalid', moreInvalid, [], function(result, err) {
  if(err) {
    console.log('pandoc exited with status code ' + err);
  else {
    //do stuff
