Simple LaTeX ⟷ Markdown converter using Pandoc

Recommended Posts

LaTeX ⟷ Markdown Alfred Workflow

Quickly convert Markdown to LaTeX or vice versa from your clipboard with Pandoc.


Description

A simple routine to convert snippets of markdown to LateX from your clipboard or vice versa. The workflow creates either a *.md or *.tex file relative to your input and at the location you choose. The file is converted with Pandoc by calling it from the terminal. The converted file subsequently gets output at the same place. Existing files will be overwritten.

 

Pandoc is key and has to be installed:

$ brew install pandoc
