Textile 2 PDF


01/14/2008

Here’s a quick and easy way to generate a decent looking PDF from some simple Textile markup, using TextMate.

  1. First, just type up your content in TextMate, using Textile mode. You’ll get syntax highlighting, live spellcheck, all the usual goodies.
  2. Next, hit the hot key for Preview (Control-Option-Apple-P)
  3. From this window, just print to PDF.

Voilà.

You can always add images and perhaps some CSS to tart it up a bit if you like.

It’s light, it’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s plain text—so you can put it under version control with all the rest of your quick memos, project documentation, and such. Right?
