From: Timothy <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: org-mode-email <email@example.com> Subject: [PATCH] Wrap LaTeX snippets in $$ with markdown export Date: Thu, 01 Apr 2021 00:41:29 +0800 [thread overview] Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> (raw) [-- Attachment #1: Type: text/plain, Size: 936 bytes --] Hi All, I anticipate that this change may be somewhat contentions because ox-md explicitly follows only the original Markdown spec from 2003, however I've thought this over and come to the conclusion that this change is still in keeping with that, and beneficial. Currently ox-md simply inherits the output from ox-html's handling of LaTeX snippets. Needless to say, the original Markdown specification does not mention LaTeX snippets. As such, by subtly tweaking the output (either adding $$ or substituting out LaTeX-style \(\) / \[\] for $ / $$) we are not deviating from the original specification any more than we already are. While I don't see any issue with this, I do see some benefits. Namely that, of the many Markdown variants that now exist, many support LaTeX snippets, but exclusively in the TeX $$ form. Hence, by applying this change the overall utility of ox-md is increased. Let me know what you think, Timothy [-- Warning: decoded text below may be mangled, UTF-8 assumed --] [-- Attachment #2: 0001-ox-md-Use-TeX-style-math-wrapping.patch --] [-- Type: text/x-patch, Size: 2721 bytes --] From b7f1b89a50752398672a642519534818d23c72a4 Mon Sep 17 00:00:00 2001 From: TEC <email@example.com> Date: Thu, 1 Apr 2021 00:25:41 +0800 Subject: [PATCH] ox-md: Use TeX-style $ math wrapping * lisp/ox-md.el (org-md-latex-environment, org-md-latex-fragment): These two new filters wrap LaTeX maths in $ / $$ TeX-style notation. While ox-md endeavours to adhere to the original Markdown specification, and not any particular variant, the original specification does not deal with LaTeX fragments at all, and so this change does not reduce how faithfully the original specification is followed. There is a major upside to this though. Of the many Markdown variants that have emerged, those that support LaTeX very often exclusively support TeX style notation. This change thus improves the utility of the Markdown export for many use cases, and deviates no more from the original specification that the current method. --- lisp/ox-md.el | 28 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 1 file changed, 28 insertions(+) diff --git a/lisp/ox-md.el b/lisp/ox-md.el index b6b2c1728..c5c0e05a5 100644 --- a/lisp/ox-md.el +++ b/lisp/ox-md.el @@ -100,6 +100,8 @@ (org-export-define-derived-backend 'md 'html (italic . org-md-italic) (item . org-md-item) (keyword . org-md-keyword) + (latex-environment . org-md-latex-environment) + (latex-fragment . org-md-latex-fragment) (line-break . org-md-line-break) (link . org-md-link) (node-property . org-md-node-property) @@ -460,6 +462,32 @@ (defun org-md-keyword (keyword contents info) (_ (org-export-with-backend 'html keyword contents info)))) +;;;; Latex Environment + +(defun org-md-latex-environment (latex-environment contents info) + "Transcode a LATEX-ENVIRONMENT object from Org to Markdown. +CONTENTS is nil.
