I'm evaluating migrating my project from bookdown to Pollen (mainly because I wholeheartedly agree with Pollen's description of the limitations of markdown). I've been going through the documentation and have a couple of basic questions regarding features that I'm used to from bookdown:
build.rktthat loads up the
metasexported from any set of Pollen source files and combine them into a single output file based on a layout configured in a pagetree file or some other structured format. It's all Racket under the hood, so you can implement any mechanism that would be feasible in a general-purpose programming language.
Thanks very much. And apologies: it looks like I should have posted this to https://github.com/mbutterick/pollen-users instead of here.
By the way, do you know if there are any 3rd party projects that have created these general-purpose templates for web books and Latex? It seems like it would fulfill something needed by many users.
Pollen is a programming system. It deliberately has a steeper learning curve than other publishing systems so that new users can evaluate it accurately. Corollary: if you want a turnkey system, you will likely be disappointed by Pollen.
If you want a “scribble/docs.racket-lang style online book”, you might consider using Scribble itself, which includes a LaTeX renderer.
