This app is a custom (not officially developed or maintained) app packaged for Cloudron.
It packages an instance of the excellent document conversion utility Pandoc (https://pandoc.org).
Pandoc only runs from the command line. By packaging it into a web app, a consistent publishing environment can be maintained in a single location (avoiding multiple local installs which might change over time) and be accessible from any device, even without Pandoc and its utilities installed.
Upload a source document in Markdown (.md) format plus any images to be included.
This app will process them using Pandoc (https://pandoc.com) with a tweaked eisvogel template and awesomebox.sty to create a beautiful PDF, without the hassle of manual formatting in Word etc. A file awesomebox.pdf is included to show what is possible for styling effects.
A sample document (sample.md) with sample cover (sample-background.pdf) and a sample logo / image (sample-logo.png) are provided, along with what the app will produce (sample.pdf).
Once the source Markdown and related images files are uploaded, click the button to process them.
The app will create a PDF, which must be downloaded to the local computer, as it cannot be retrieved later.
The source Markdown file will be moved to /app/data/done (in future version, it will be deleted).
Image files will not be moved, in case they are required for subsequent PDF creations, e.g.on updating and re-uploading the source Markdown file.
NB : currently source image files might be overwritten by other users of the app uploading a file of the same name but different content. Your document will then be. reated with the wrong image. If so, re-upload them and retry. This issue will be addressed in a future version.
Authentication may be added later (currently not required under initial use case).
