maruku(1) converts markdown files to various output


maruku [options] [ [ ...]]


maruku is a markdown interpreter: it accepts files written in the markdown language and transforms them into HTML, TeX of PDF (using pdflatex). If no file is given on the command-line, maruku acts as a filter and converts standard input to standard output.

An important note for debian users: to prevent a lightweight library such as libmaruku-ruby to pull in heavy dependencies like texlive, libmaruku-ruby does not depend on texlive (but only recommends it). This means that if you do not install texlive, you will not have PDF output.
