I’ve started using markdown in plain text documents, and I’m thinking about trying to use pandoc to create an rtf version. My initial idea was to use Hazel to watch a folder within my Eaglefiler library and then run pandoc when I drop a record onto that folder. I wouldn’t be changing the original file, just adding a new record in rtf format and then asking EagleFiler to scan for new items in the Files folder. Just wondering, is there a better approach that I should look into first?
I think that would work, but what happens when you modify the text file? Would you want the RTF to be regenerated? It might be nice to write a script (for the system scripts menu or FastScripts) that regenerates the .rtf file for the selected .txt file.
I’ll give that a shot. Thank you for the suggestion.
