What would you like to do?
Make all markdown files in directory into PDFs
# Produce PDFs from all Markdown files in a directory
# Lincoln Mullen | http://lincolnmullen.com | lincoln@lincolnmullen.com
# List files to be made by finding all *.md files and appending .pdf
PDFS := $(patsubst %.md,%.md.pdf,$(wildcard *.md))
# The all rule makes all the PDF files listed
all : $(PDFS)
# This generic rule accepts PDF targets with corresponding Markdown
# source, and makes them using pandoc
%.md.pdf : %.md
pandoc $< -o $@
# Remove all PDF outputs
clean :
rm $(PDFS)
# Remove all PDF outputs then build them again
rebuild : clean all
