Discover how to write manuscripts in Markdown and translate them Pandoc into various output formats. You will use Markdown to annotate text formatting information having a strong focus on semantic information: you are able to annotate your text with information about where chapters and sections start, but not how chapter and heading captions must be formatted. As a result, you’ll decouple the structure of a text from the way that it is envisioned and make it much easier for you to generate various kinds of output. The same text can easily be formatted as HTML, PDF, or Word files, with various visual styles, by tools that know the markup annotations.
Finally, you will learn to use Pandoc, a tool for translating between various markup languages, such as LaTeX, HTML, and Markdown. This publication won’t explain all of the performance that Pandoc supplies, but will teach you how to translate Markdown files, the way to personalize your documents using templates, and also how to expand Pandoc’s performance using filters. If that is something you’re interested in, including Markdown and Pandoc will get you started.
With this set of skills you’ll be able to write more effectively without worrying about needless formatting and other distractions.
