BlockML for Mac
BlockML is a markup language that includes both LaTeX and Markdown functions in an attempt to provide a lightweight solution for sharing scientific documents. The language allows you to create table of contents, to integrate bibliographic references, and much more.
At the same time, the BlockML Mac OS X application enables you to quickly process text files and convert them into HTML documents that can be easily read on a wide range of devices without having the original documents layout altered.
Quickly create your own BlockML documents
To get started, you must employ the BlockML language to create your own documents and then save them to .txt files. BlockML is able to handle paragraphs, line breaks, titles, headings, sections, images, code listings, captions, footnotes, mathematical formulas, and much more.
To learn more about the BlockML language, its syntax, and all included capabilities, you can read the extensive documentation provided by the developers.
Convert text to HTML in no time
Once you have the source text file, all you have to do is drag and drop it on top of the BlockML OS X app. The utility processes the data and then automatically opens the HTML file in a new tab, via your default web browser.
For your convenience, BlockML keeps track of the recently processed text documents in a minimalist drop down menu. In addition, you have the option to quickly recompile the text file any time you want.
Unsophisticated solution for converting text files to HTML documents
Right out of the box, BlockML can be employed to just quickly transform TXT files into HTML. Furthermore, the utility is also able to compile files that employ the BlockML markup language: once you learn how to use the BlockML syntax, the app will prove to be a great tools when you need to share scientific documents while making sure the original appearance is preserved.
