I see quite some
pandoc / Markdown questions recently. It fits the pipeline I use, so I'd like to share / post some questions with canned answers. However, no one asks me for that.
Next, more grave issue: It is more about interoperation of LaTeX,
make, and what not. Basically, it is borderline with "programming" SO.
So, should I? More generally: are
pandoc topics welcome at TeX.SX? They involve some sort of LaTeX generation and
pandoc is often used as a front to LaTeX. But there is more to it. I would think that generating HTML from Markdown is off-topic. Where is the line? Do we want to deal with more
pandoc / Markdown / generated LaTeX questions in the future?
Directions in which this might go:
- Yes, please do talk about
- This is answered 2000 times on SO already.
- We are a forum for LaTeX wizards, not some weaklings who cannot even write
\emphon their own!
pandocto LaTeX and interoperation is allowed,
pandocto anything else is forbidden.
- We are not snobby, but all this
pandocthing is really off-topic.
I am more seeking after the spirit of the community than a quote of the rules.
