My tale of woe
When I started to write my first ebook I decided to use pandoc to transform markdown into pdf.
It basically looked like this
pandoc metadata_de.yaml -o ./level_up_de.pdf --from markdown -V lang=de-DE level_up_de.md
This simple command can be pasted into the command line everytime I want to build a new version of the ebook.
But: I have to keep in mind the command which is tedious. I could write it into a text file and copy it everytime I use it.
There is a more elegant way: let’s make a script!
