    Hi all,

    deplate is a ruby based tool for converting documents written in an
    unobtrusive, wiki-like markup to LaTeX, HTML, “HTML slidesâ€, or docbook.
    It supports page templates, embedded LaTeX code, footnotes, citations,
    bibliographies, automatic generation of an index, table of contents etc.
    It can be used to create web pages and (via LaTeX or Docbook)
    high-quality printouts from the same source. In this respect it is
    similar to tools like aft or txt2tags. deplate probably isn’t suited for
    highly technical documents or documents that require a sophisticated
    graphical layout. For other purposes it should work fine.

    deplate aims to be modular and easily extensible. It is the accompanying
    converter for the Vim viki plugin.

    From a ruby developer perspective, deplate can be used as follows:

    > require 'deplate/converter'
    >
    > t = <<EOF
    > * Introduction
    >
    > ''deplate'' is a tool for converting wiki-like markup to latex, html, or
    > "html-slides".
    > EOF
    >
    > to_html = Deplate::Converter.new
    > puts to_html.convert_string(t)
    >
    > to_latex = Deplate::Converter.new("latex")
    > puts to_latex.convert_string(t)


    deplate can be downloaded from it's sourceforge project site:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/deplate

    There is also a gem distribution.

    Cheers,
    Thomas.
