Will convert a markdown text file to a fancy PDF document

Project Description

[![changelog](]( [![PyPI version](](

# pymarktex version 1.0.3

This program creates a PDF file out of a specifically formated markdown text file. In particular, the markdown file can contain extra information that will be included in the final PDF with a fancy header. See the example included.

Dependencies: * A text conversion engine. The pandoc executable should be in your $PATH. * A latex engine. The xelatex executable should be in your $PATH. * These two python libraries: sh, pystache (you can install them with pip).

You can use it from the shell like this:

$ pymarktex

And it will generate the corresponding lorem.pdf file in the same directory.
