Manuscripts.io is a next generation writing tool to follow up Manuscripts.app (Manuscripts for Mac) re-engineered to support collaboration, whilst still allowing for a fully offline workflow, with both web and native desktop app client applications in the works (with beta version of the web client available).
The universal markup converter
Pandoc is a Haskell library for converting from one markup format to another, and a command-line tool that uses this library. It can convert from
Pandoc can also produce PDF output via LaTeX, Groff ms, or HTML.
Pandoc’s enhanced version of Markdown includes syntax for tables, definition lists, metadata blocks, footnotes, citations, math, and much more. See the User’s Manual below under Pandoc’s Markdown.
Pandoc has a modular design: it consists of a set of readers, which parse text in a given format and produce a native representation of the document (an abstract syntax tree or AST), and a set of writers, which convert this native representation into a target format. Thus, adding an input or output format requires only adding a reader or writer. Users can also run custom pandoc filters to modify the intermediate AST (see the documentation for filters and lua filters).
Because pandoc’s intermediate representation of a document is less expressive than many of the formats it converts between, one should not expect perfect conversions between every format and every other. Pandoc attempts to preserve the structural elements of a document, but not formatting details such as margin size. And some document elements, such as complex tables, may not fit into pandoc’s simple document model. While conversions from pandoc’s Markdown to all formats aspire to be perfect, conversions from formats more expressive than pandoc’s Markdown can be expected to be lossy.
