A work-in-progress document processor written in Racket.
Create PDFs from a simple text-based source format. Use any TTF or OTF or WOFF fonts you like.
Quad lets you avoid:
- word processors
- page-layout programs
- web browsers
- LaTeX and derivatives
- subscriptions, surveillance, and “creative clouds”
Quad, by contrast —
- is downloadable & self-contained
- is open source
- makes document layout fast & easy
- uses source files that are portable between Mac OS, Windows, and Linux
- works with Pollen
Using Racket 6.10+, install from the command line:
raco pkg install quad
And update like so:
raco pkg update --update-deps quad
Can be posted in the Quad forum.
Fonts: mostly OFL, noted in each directory that contains fonts
Actively developed, though progress tends to go in bursts due to other commitments. Even when I’m not committing code to Quad, I am thinking about it.
