general markup converter
  4 reviews

Pandoc is a Haskell library for converting from one markup format to another, and a command-line tool that uses this library. It can read several dialects of Markdown and (subsets of) HTML, reStructuredText, LaTeX, DocBook, MediaWiki markup, Haddock markup, OPML, Emacs Org-mode, txt2tags, Word Docx, ODT, and Textile, and it can write Markdown, reStructuredText, HTML, LaTeX (including rendering as plain PDF or beamer slide shows), ConTeXt, DocBook, OPML, OpenDocument, ODT, Word docx, RTF, MediaWiki, DokuWiki, Textile, groff man pages, GNU Texinfo, plain text, Emacs Org-Mode, AsciiDoc, Haddock markup, EPUB (v2 or v3), FictionBook2, InDesign ICML, and several kinds of HTML/javascript slide shows (S5, Slidy, Slideous, DZSlides, reveal.js).

In contrast to most existing tools for converting Markdown to HTML, pandoc has a modular design: it consists of a set of readers, which parse text in a given format and produce a native representation of the document, and a set of writers, which convert this native representation into a target format. Thus, adding an input or output format requires only adding a reader or writer.

This package contains the pandoc tool.

PDF output via PDFLaTeX requires the package texlive-latex-recommended.
* XeLaTeX additionally requires texlive-xetex
* LuaTeX additionally requires texlive-luatex
* content with YAML metadata additionally requires etoolbox
PDF output via wkhtmltopdf requires the package wkhtmltopdf.
