Simple Markdown to HTML converter. In comparison to standard, built-in CLI util it generates a nice-looking little-bit styled HTML.


$ gem install maddoc


maddoc > my-file.html

MadDoc was mainly written for very own personal purposes of "sending" a nice-looking versions of documentation files written in MarkDown for my colleagues. Once markdown is converted in a nice looking HTML, it's not a problem to convert it to PDF if you would like to:

for file in *.md ; do
  file = $(basename $file .md)
  maddoc $ > $file.html
  wkhtmltodpf $file.html $file.pdf
  rm $file.html
