Generate articles and reports from markdown files using Pandoc and LaTeX.

A note on fonts

The fonts used throughout Polytextum are not included. To use Polytextum, you must sync the required fonts from Adobe Fonts.

Make sure you have successfully synced all styles of these fonts:

Quick start

  1. Clone this repository to XDG_DATA_HOME (defaults to $HOME/.local/share):

    git clone ${XDG_DATA_HOME:-$HOME/.local/share}/polytextum
  2. Place the polytextum executable somewhere in your path.

  3. Run bash ${XDG_DATA_HOME:-$HOME/.local/share}/polytextum/scripts/ to link all the necessary files into place

  4. Run bash ${XDG_DATA_HOME:-$HOME/.local/share}/polytextum/scripts/ to copy all of Adobe Fonts’ files into a cache

  5. Start using Polytextum!


To run Polytextum on a given markdown file run

pt article

for an article, and this

pt report

for a report.

Note that the difference between a report and an article is that articles can have two levels of headings, and that reports can have three (the top level is turned into a chapter). Reports also have title pages and tables of contents.
