markdown to roff and html converter

ronnjs(1) -- markdown to roff/html converter

Deprecated, see for a replacement that uses a better-maintained markdown parser.


Javascript port of ronn, using markdown-js to produce roff man pages. Not fully compatible with ronn, although it aims to be, wherever possible.


This outputs doc.roff from a markdown file :

ronn.js --build --roff

Command-line options are listed with --help

When file argument is omitted, ronn.js reads standard input.

How it works ?

markdown-js parses markdown text to a document model, which in turn is used to ouput a man page.
