Publishing to html and pdf

You can also publish any supported input format using markdown for doc chunks to html and pdf documents. Producing pdf output requires that you have pdflatex installed and in your path. The markdown variant is Julia markdown.

You can use a YAML header in the beginning of the input document delimited with "–-" to set the document title, author and date e.g.

title : Weave example
author : Matti Pastell
date: 15th December 2016

Here is a a sample document and output:

FIRdesignplots.jl, FIRdesignplots.html , FIRdesignplots.pdf.

weave("FIR_design_plots.jl", docformat = "md2pdf")

Note: docformats md2pdf and md2html use Julia markdown and pandoc2pdf and pandoc2html use Pandoc.


You can use a custom template with md2pdf and md2html formats with template argument (e.g) weave("FIR_design_plots.jl", template = "custom.tpl"). You can use the existing templates as starting point.

For HTML: julia_html.tpl and LaTex: julia_tex.tpl

Templates are rendered using Mustache.jl.
