pandoc-convert-plus is a fork of the
pandoc-convert plugin for Atom that gives more flexibility to the user, by allowing them to invoke pandoc with additional arguments.
pandoc-convert plugin allowed a user to quickly use pandoc to convert their documents to many different formats with the
Ctrl + P command in atom, as shown here :
pandoc-convert had one limitation : it didn't allow users to use a set of arguments with the pandoc command that the plugin executed.
With pandoc-convert-plus, you can now use any arguments that you want with pandoc. This allows you to customize how pandoc will convert your document.
Simply go into the settings of Atom, and then the settings of the package. You'll find a text field to add your arguments.
No ! Just add them like you would in a Pandoc command through a terminal/command prompt.
Here is an example of some arguments to use a bibliography file, to remove the label of figures, and to use the xelatex engine to generate
--citeproc --bibliography=C:/User/Bibliography/Bibliography_file.bib -fmarkdown-implicit_figures --pdf-engine=xelatex
⚠️ Be careful about spaces and special characters in the file paths present in your arguments. They might lead to issues with Pandoc.
Do you have a single bibliography database that you use in many markdown (
.md) notes ?
If that's so, you can use pandoc-convert-plus to automatically use the citeproc plugin of pandoc along with a .bib file containing your bibliography for all of your conversions.
Here is an example of the arguments that you might use to that end :
-fmarkdown-implicit_figures, et voila !
For example, you can use
xelatex with the argument
pandoc-convert-plus is just a tiny modification of the original
pandoc-convert, please check the repository page of
pandoc-convert for more information about its functioning.
