pandoc preprocessor

Pandoc is a great for converting text.

Markdown to HTML, to LaTeX, to PDF, etc.

Pandoc does process a lot of raw latex features while converting markdown to PDF, like:

Title
===

\tableofcontents

\pagebreak

# Hello World

* Line 1
* Line 2

BUT, pandoc can't process \includes. Pandoc can only concatenate documents in a row, so you can't do:

Title
===

\tableofcontents

\pagebreak

# Hello World

* Line 1
* Line 2

\include{chapter01.md}

So, I've created a simple preprocessor in python. It reads your files and process all includes in the document, generating a bigger document. It's recursive, so you can nest several includes.

Check out the code and how to use in github: https://github.com/george-silva/pandoc-preprocessor
