I use pandoc—and its flavor of markdown—to create my webpages, slides, PDFs, and Word files. Ironically, the only place I don’t use it is here, on a markdown-based blog, where I have been stuck with Pelican’s more limited markdown parser.
I can include footnotes1, citations (Giddens 1979), and tables:
The one hitch is that you have to convert your markdown files with pelican metadata to pandoc YAML metadata. I wrote
pel2pan.py for this.
