NAME

Text::Amuse - Generate HTML and LaTeX documents from Emacs Muse markup.

VERSION

Version 0.60

SYNOPSIS

Typical usage which should illustrate all the public methods

    use Text::Amuse;
    my $doc = Text::Amuse->new(file => "test.muse");
    
    # get the title, author, etc. as an hashref
    my $html_directives = $doc->header_as_html;
    
    # get the table of contents
    my $html_toc = $doc->toc_as_html;
    
    # get the body
    my $html_body = $doc->as_html;
    
    # same for LaTeX
    my $latex_directives = $doc->header_as_latex;
    my $latex_body = $doc->as_latex;
    
    # do we need a \tableofcontents ?
    my $wants_toc = $doc->wants_toc; # (boolean)
    
    # files attached
    my @images = $doc->attachments;
    
    # at this point you can inject the values in a template, which is
    # left to the user. If you want an executable, please install
    # Text::Amuse::Compile.
    

CONSTRUCTOR

new (file => $file)

Create a new Text::Amuse object. You should pass the named parameter file, pointing to a muse file to process. Please note that you can't pass a string. Build a wrapper going through a temporary file if you need to pass strings.

Optionally, accept a partial option pointing to an arrayref of integers, meaning that only those chunks will be needed.

The beamer output doesn't take partial in account.

document

Accessor to the Text::Amuse::Document object. [Internal]

file

Accessor to the file passed in the constructor (read-only)

partials

Return an hashref where the keys are the chunk indexes and the values are true, undef otherwise.

HTML output

as_html

Output the HTML document (and cache it in the object)

header_as_html

The directives of the document in HTML (title, authors, etc.), returned as an hashref.

Please note that the keys are not escaped nor manipulated.

toc_as_html

Return the HTML formatted ToC, as a string.

as_splat_html

Return a list of strings, each of them is a html page resulting from the splitting of the as_html output. Linked footnotes as inserted at the end of each page.

raw_html_toc

Return an internal representation of the ToC

LaTeX output

as_latex

Output the (Xe)LaTeX document (and cache it in the object), as a string.

as_splat_latex

Return a list of strings, each of them is a latex chunk resulting from the splitting of the as_latex output.

as_beamer

Output the document as LaTeX, but wrap each section which doesn't contain a comment ; noslide inside a frame.

wants_toc

Return true if a toc is needed because we found some headings inside.

wants_preamble

Normally returns true. If partial output, only if the pre string was passed.

Preamble is the title page, or the title/author/date chunk.

wants_postamble

Normally returns true. If partial output, only if the post string was passed.

Postamble is the metadata of the text.

header_as_latex

The LaTeX formatted header, as an hashref. Keys are not interpolated in any way.

Helpers

attachments

Report the attachments (images) found, as a list. This can be invoked only after a call (direct or indirect) to as_html or as_latex, or any other operation which scans the body, otherwise you'll get an empty list.

language_code

The language code of the document. This method will looks into the header of the document, searching for the keys lang or language, defaulting to en.

language

Same as above, but returns the human readable version, notably used by Babel, Polyglossia, etc.

header_defined

Return a convenience hashref with the header fields set to true when they are defined in the document.

This way, in the template you can write doc.header_defined.subtitle without doing crazy things like doc.header_as_html.subtitle.size which relies on virtual methods.

other_language_codes

Always return undef, because in the current implementation you can't switch language in the middle of a text. But could be implemented in the future. It should return an arrayref or undef.

other_languages

Always return undef. When and if implemented, it should return an arrayref or undef.

hyphenation

Return a validated version of the #hyphenation header, if present, or the empty string.

DIFFERENCES WITH THE ORIGINAL EMACS MUSE MARKUP

The updated manual can be found at http://www.amusewiki.org/library/manual and is also present between the test files (t/testfiles/manual.muse), even if is just seldom updated.

Inline markup

Underlining has been dropped.

Emphasis and strong can also be written with tags, like <em>emphasis</em>, <strong>strong</strong> and <code>code</code>.

Added tag <sup> and <sub> for superscript and subscript.

Block markup

The only tables supported are the native one (with ||| as separator).

Since version 0.60, the code blocks, beside the example tag, can also be written as:

  {{{
   if ($perl) {...}
  }}}

Borrowed from the Creole markup.

Others

Anchors are unsupported (mainly because of the confusing syntax and the PDF output).

Embedded lisp code and syntax highlight is not supported.

Exoteric stuff like citing from other resources is not supported.

The scope of this module is not to replicate all the features of the original implementation, but to use the markup for a wiki (as opposed as a personal and private wiki).
