In the last post, I gave a brief introduction to using Pandoc. There are a few plugins for Sublime Text that I have installed that make it much easier to use Pandoc. On any Sublime Text installation, the first plugin to add should be Package Control. This allows you to easily install more plugins from within Sublime Text with an easy-to-use interface. While there are many plugins out there geared toward Markdown in general and Pandoc in particular, these are the ones that I use:
- Markdown Editing
- This markdown plugin trumps all the others and provides a base color scheme that I really like.
- Academic Markdown
- This requires Markdown Editing and extends its features to include some of the things academics would be interested in, like highlighting for Pandoc’s version of citations and CriticMarkup.
- Just tell this plugin where your BibTeX file is and it will handle all your citation needs. I especially use the fuzzy filterable list of all my bibliography entries to add citations extremely quickly even when I only half remember a title or the name of an author.
- This does what it says with lots of reconfigurability and minimal overhead.
- Wrap Plus
- This hard wraps selections and best of all it intelligently handles markdown-style block quotes and lists. (As an added bonus it handles a variety of block comment styles in different programming languages.)
Also take a look at the little tweaks that I have added myself for Academic Markdown and creating footnotes with a consistent numbering scheme across multiple files.
