  • Beautifying Org Mode in Emacs (2018)
    6 projects | | 15 Apr 2024
    My main authoring tool is then Emacs Markdown Mode ( For data entry, it comes with some bells and whistles similar to org-mode, like C-c C-l for inserting links etc.

    I seldom export my notes for external usage, but if it is the case, I use lowdown ( which also comes with some nice output targets (among the more unusual are Groff and Terminal). Of cource pandoc ( does a very good job here, too.

    This is one of those things that the ever-amazing pandoc ( does very well, on top of supporting virtually every other document format.
  • LaTeX makes me so angry at word
    1 project | | 26 Mar 2024
    Folks feel the same way about Markdown versus LaTeX: why use something significantly more complicated where a looser, human-readable grammar works better?

    For any other situations, I use, or, generate a Word doc scriptomatically.

  • Launch HN: Onedoc (YC W24) – A better way to create PDFs
    11 projects | | 11 Mar 2024
    Congrats on the launch, I guess, but there are so many free options that I can't think of a situation where paying $0.25 per document would be justified...? Just to name a few:

    Back in the days, I used to use XSL-FO [0] and it was okay. It was not very precise but it rarely if ever broke, and was perfectly integrated with an XML/XSLT solution. Yeah, this was a long time ago.

    Last month I used html-to-pdfmake [1] and it's also not very precise and more fragile, but very efficient and fast.

    Yet another approach would be to pro grammatically generate .rtf files (for example) and use Pandoc [2] to produce PDFs (I have not tried this in production but don't see why it wouldn't work).




  • Ask HN: Looking for lightweight personal blogging platform

    Others have mentioned static site generators. I like Hakyll [1] because it can tightly integrate with Pandoc [2] and allows you to develop custom solutions if your needs ever grow.

  • Pandoc
    17 projects | | 28 Jan 2024
    I have used it to kickstart a blogging project that I wish to come back to soon. The Lua inter-op for custom readers, writers and filters is great but I wish there was more editor integration and even perhaps an official IDE/editor with built-in debugging features (probably something already do-able with Emacs but I haven't checked). The only blocker for my project is no support for "ChunkedDoc" for Lua filters [1] which forces me to write more code and a complicated Makefile.
