Working on an extended version of the North Pacific Logbook.
Using Pandoc to generate a PDF from a .txt file (written in Pandoc Markdown).
Result is awesome :D.
While working on the book, I'm also writing notes for others with limited command-line experience, like myself, as I ran into a few issues when setting it up, and when trying to add special formatting (all good now though).
It's a fantastic way to format articles or books. Technicalities shouldn't stop beginners from using it.
@rek this looks like LaTeX quality but without the need for authoring in LaTeX... you’ve got my attention
@rek Can't wait to read this! I finished Moitessier's book already, time for the rabbits to step up to the plate again. :p
@thomasorus Yea :P, many times in the last 3 days, as I was trying to figure out what would work best for the project.
@rek this is fantastic. had no idea Pandoc existed and its exactly what I’ve been looking for to convert markdown.
@peregrine @rek Also, while I'm gushing, I really want an excuse to use the Tufte-LaTeX templates. They're absolutely gorgeous: https://anorien.csc.warwick.ac.uk/mirrors/CTAN/macros/latex/contrib/tufte-latex/sample-book.pdf
