Converting from Textile

Textile is a lightweight markup language to convert text to HTML. 2002, Dean Allen developed the format to use it in his own content management system called Textpattern. It was originally written in PHP, like Textpattern was, but has been translated to Perl, Python, Ruby, JavaScript, and C#. There is no standard nor a working specification. Though, there are a handful of tools that use or used Textile. JIRA, Jekyll, Qt, Redmine, Salesforce too only name a few. Not sure why someone would want to work with it, but I bet there are reasons. Dean Allen called it “a humane web text generator”, sounds nice, doesn’t it?

The files end with .textile by default.

Converting to LaTeX

LaTeX was developed in 1984 and no, that’s not a typo. It’s nearly 40 years old. It started as a writing tool for mathematicians and computer scientists, but has quickly been taken up by scholars who wanted to write documents with math expressions or non-Latin scripts (Arabic or Chinese for example). As with a lot of other text document formats, it’s used to structure the content, not style it. LaTeX is used directly or as an intermediate format to produce files for printing or digital distribution. It supports highlighting (such as bold or italic), citations and cross-references. Or to make it short: It’s the most powerful format to structure your texts. Convert all your files to LaTeX.

The files end with .tex by default. More about LaTeX files
