Optional Configuration

By default, all supported files will be converted into PDF files, but you can convert to HTML (or any other supported format) instead by setting the pandoc.output_format setting:

jirafs config --set pandoc.output_format html

Additionally, you can limit which files will be transformed on a format or extension basis.

To limit to only specific extensions, set the pandoc.enabled_input_extensions setting; for example, to only transform reStructuredText and textile documents into PDFs, you would run:

jirafs config --set pandoc.enabled_input_extensions rst,textile

To limit to only specific formats, set the pandoc.enabled_input_formats setting. To limit to transforming only markdown and latex documents, you could run:

jirafs config --set pandoc.enabled_input_formats markdown,latex
