Convert Markdown to Pillar?

sergio_101

Just wondering if this is possible. Just about every stand alone editor allows users to edit or export to markdown. I tend to do everything in a standalone editor when getting written material ready for publishing to the web.

I don’t have any beef with pillar, i just want to be able to write using a separate tool.

thanks!

Should be possible, but that would involve writing a markdown to pillar converter :)

The other way around already exists, but the conversion is lossy; from markdown to pillar it should be possible to maintain most of the semantics.

Well the simplest way is to write it markdown and then use a converter like Pandadoc to convert markdown to latex. You can inline latex in Pillar if you want to convert Latex to Pillar you will have to use an emacs mode that Damien made that converts Latex to Pillar. I have converted a ton of Latex to Pillar with the emacs mode that saved me a ton of time when I was porting PBE to Pharo 4 and to pillar (original PBE was completely written in Latex).
