A book-publishing system written in Racket. Unstable. Incomplete. Et cetera. It’s becoming more civilized. But this is the actual software I use to publish & maintain my web-based book Butterick’s Practical Typography.
If you think documents should be programmable, you’ll love it.
If not, you can move along.
Pollen gives you access to a full programming language (Racket) with a text-based syntax that makes it easy to embed code within your documents.
- Quick tour
- Pollen as a text preprocessor (for CSS, etc.)
- Pollen for Markdown authoring
- Pollen for free-form markup authoring
- Pollen for multiple-output publishing
- Full docs
Using Racket 6.0+, install from the command line:
raco pkg install pollen
And update like so:
raco pkg update --update-deps pollen
