Hi all,

deplate is a ruby based tool for converting documents written in an
unobtrusive, wiki-like markup to LaTeX, HTML, “HTML slides”, or docbook.
It supports page templates, embedded LaTeX code, footnotes, citations,
bibliographies, automatic generation of an index, table of contents etc.
It can be used to create web pages and (via LaTeX or Docbook)
high-quality printouts from the same source. In this respect it is
similar to tools like aft or txt2tags. deplate probably isn’t suited for
highly technical documents or documents that require a sophisticated
graphical layout. For other purposes it should work fine.

deplate aims to be modular and easily extensible. It is the accompanying
converter for the Vim viki plugin.

From a ruby developer perspective, deplate can be used as follows:

> puts to_html.convert_string(t)
>
> to_latex = Deplate::Converter.new("latex")
> puts to_latex.convert_string(t)


deplate can be downloaded from it's sourceforge project site:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/deplate

There is also a gem distribution.

More information about deplate can be found here:

Cheers,
Thomas.
