marked-man

wrapper adding manpage output to 'marked', inspired by 'ronn'

marked-man(1) -- markdown to roff

marked-man README.md > doc/marked-man.1

See marked README for documentation about how to use marked.

Note that marked-man --format=html is the same as marked.

marked-man wraps marked to extend it with groff output support in order to create Unix manual pages for use with man.

marked-man invokes marked --gfm --sanitize, and you can pass additional options through.
The --breaks option, which retains intra-paragraph line breaks, can be helpful to match default ronn behavior.

marked-man adds some options to marked's existing options:

  • --format <format>
    Sets the output format. Outputs html if different from roff.
    Defaults to roff.

  • --name <name>
    The name shown in the manpage header, if it isn't given in the ronn header like in this README.
    Defaults to empty string.

  • --section <section>
    The section number shown in the manpage header, if it isn't given in the ronn header like in this README.
    Defaults to empty string.

  • --version <version>
    The version shown in the manpage footer.
    Defaults to empty string.

  • --manual <manual>
    The manual-group name shown in the manpage header.
    Defaults to empty string.

  • --date <date>
    The date shown in the manpage header.
    Defaults to now, must be acceptable to new Date(string).

From the npm registry:

  • locally (--save, --save-dev, or --save-optional add marked-man to your package.json file as a runtime, development-time, or optional runtime dependency, respectively)

      npm install marked-man [--save|--save-dev|--save-optional]
    
  • globally (puts marked-man in your system's path):

      [sudo] npm install marked-man -g
    

To view this README as a man page, run something like the following:

marked-man --version v0.1.0 --manual 'Man Utilities' README.md > /tmp/mm$$.1 && man /tmp/mm$$.1
