Add PDF support to Ghostwriter
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I am asking for a Markdown editor that supports export to PDF.

Typora comes to mind. But if you guys know any better why not package it?

Looks like what he really need is Pandoc so that ghostwriter can output PDF.

@aldoiljazi Now that we have pandoc, Ghostwriter supports PDF output, provided that you have pandoc, texlive, and texlive-fonts-extra installed.

That's great!

I'm not going to force ghostwriter to install the pandoc + tex stuff until we have a smaller texlive base for it to use. For now though, PDF output can be enabled with a one-liner:

sudo eopkg it pandoc texlive texlive-extra
