  • PM wants something that "looks better than a Word doc"
    2 projects | /r/technicalwriting | 1 Jun 2023
    If you really want to go that route, take a look at pandoc and ping me if you have questions. Pandoc in combination with the Eisvogel LaTeX template can be a quick way to get a really good-looking doc.
  • Best website to write a rulebook for ttrpgs
    3 projects | /r/rpg | 17 May 2023
    I use Obsidian ( for a lot of things, including my RPG stuff, and there are options for exporting things as PDFs. It’s great for getting organized and doing research, but I would use other tools for long-form writing and layout. What I like about Obsidian though is that everything is done in Markdown ( and I can use Pandoc ( to transform the source to whatever I need. The caveat is that Obsidian uses a flavor of Markdown with some non-standard extensions, so a pure Markdown editor like Typora ( might be a better choice depending on your needs.
  • Screen reader accessibility of character sheets in Blades
    2 projects | /r/bladesinthedark | 14 May 2023
    My second question is just checking my solution is at all sane. I'm using markdown to make my own character sheets for each playbook, including all the information I think prudent (happy to share if it'd help and not be sharing anything proprietary), and then using pandoc to convert these into word documents. I'm then just sharing these with my players and they can then edit them for their characters and update them as needs be. Is this a reasonable approach? Or is there a better approach?
  • Is it just me or it nix becoming more common
    5 projects | /r/NixOS | 4 May 2023
    Especially Haskell tools often live in proximity to nix as well, e.g., pandoc or xmonad.

  • What software do you use to write documentation?
    11 projects | /r/learnprogramming | 27 Apr 2023
    Tried mkdocs and it is great; beautiful styling and both Markdown and reStructuredText can be used. It would be perfect if I could figure out a way to replace the Markdown -> HTML converter (probably python-Markdown?) with pandoc
  • Is there anyway to extract the first page of an epub as image so I can use it in lf previewer
    5 projects | /r/commandline | 27 Apr 2023
    You could use pandoc to convert it to a PDF, from which the first page could be extracted (e.g. via pdfseparate(1)) and then converted to an image (e.g. via convert(1)). But perhaps someone else has a more elegant suggestion.

    I'm freelancing as a pandoc consultant, and I regularly get to fix bugs and to extend pandoc with additional functionality. My proudest work is the Lua subsystem, which is now used heavily, e.g. in Quarto.
  • Looking for Word Processor recs
    2 projects | /r/Fanbinding | 15 Apr 2023
    Pandoc automatically converts many (many) formats into beautiful typeset PDF pages. It uses TeX internally, which is strongly-opinionated typesetting software that will largely ignore whatever spacing is in the input document & replace it with what a detail-oriented, perfectionist, founder of Computer Science thought math textbooks should look like in 1978, & it is beautiful.
