Instructions to make PDF with pandoc markdown

Installation

sudo apt install texlive pandoc texlive-xetex

Grab any fonts you would like to use from google fonts. I like Lora or Merriweather. For Linux put those fonts in ~/.fonts.

To Build

pandoc --pdf-engine=xelatex input.md -o output.pdf

Or put this in your .vimrc.

:noremap <leader>m :!pandoc --pdf-engine=xelatex %:p -o output.pdf<cr>
