Export Notebooks in Markdown Format
Sun, 05/05/2019 - 06:55 am
I have two competing goals. First, I want to capture content to notebooks without having to worry about formatting as I go. Secondly, I want to share notebooks that contain images as "publication-ready" reports for my colleagues who do not have Igor Pro.
* Notebooks can be exported as text or rtf. Images are lost in these formats.
* Notebooks can be exported as html. When the notebook has images, this is not one self-contained file.
* Notebooks can be printed->saved as PDF. When the notebook has content that has been saved solely as text (i.e. unless I go back and format that text), the output is ... dirty ... it is not "publication ready".
I am finding that Markdown text with embedded images offers the best of both worlds. I can type in text and have the formatting applied later.
A logbook package that I will post sometime soon is storing content to a notebook as basic markdown format.
I would like to have support in Igor Pro to save notebooks in markdown format.
