An extension of Markdown to notate Australian-style legal markup, using the Python mistletoe Markdown parser.

legalmd can process Markdown files into LaTeX source code, and RTF. The output style is based on, but separate from, the latex-legal style.


See for example markup.

To generate LaTeX output, run:

python -m legalmd > example.tex

The LaTeX output file can then be compiled as usual into a PDF document. Note that the generated code utilises fontspec for font support, so LuaLaTeX or XeLaTeX will be required.

To generate RTF output, run:

python -m legalmd --format rtf > example.rtf

The RTF output file can then be directly viewed in a compatible RTF editor.
