md2ltr

md2ltr is a bash script to convert markdown files to formated pdf letters.

It uses latex via pandoc and expects the following strict, not runtime checked file format:

Sender Name
Sender Address
Sender City

Recipient Name
Recipient Address
Recipient City

Date

Opening line,

body of the message.

Closing line

Signature

Everything but the body of the message must only be a single line. Unused Lines must be left empty as their line number is important.

The style of the produced letter can be changed by modifying the latex template md2ltr.latex. A different template can be used by supplying the -t flag.

If no input files are given on the command line, stdin is used.

More information about Koma-Script, the latex package that does most of the work, can be found here.
