Command line tools for MyST Markdown

Project description

MyST Markdown Command Line Interface, mystmd

MIT License CI

mystmd is a set of open-source, community-driven tools designed for scientific communication, including a powerful authoring framework that supports blogs, online books, scientific papers, reports and journals articles.

Note The mystmd project is in beta. It is being used to explore a full MyST implementation and will change significantly and rapidly. The project is being developed by a small team of people on the Executable Books Project, and may make rapid decisions without fully public/inclusive discussion. We will continue to update this documentation as the project stabilizes.


The mystmd project provides a command line tool (mystmd) for working with MyST Markdown projects.

  • Provides functionality for cross-referencing, external structured links, and scientific citations
  • Translate and render MyST Markdown into:
    • HTML for static websites, and modern React for interactive websites (like this website!)
    • PDFs and LaTeX documents, with specific templates for over 400 journals
    • Microsoft Word export
  • Parse MyST into a standardized AST, that follows the MyST Markdown Spec

See the documentation.
