Ménneu

Component-based extensible document processor

✒️Render the { markdown | lsx | html } document templates into a ✨beautiful✨ { pdf | html | image }📑📊📈📰📄 formats.

Ménneu

npm GitHub release Travis GitHub forks GitHub stars

You can easily build the complex documents written in Markdown, HTML and LSX that including images, charts, UML diagrams, barcodes and 2d codes (QR Code).
And get the output as a PDF, PNG and JPEG rendered by Puppeteer, or the HTML that packed into the single file.

Furthermore, you can insert the data from the file into the document with the control statements.


Examples

Markdown Demo source / pdf Billing Statement source / pdf HTML Demo source / pdf
Testing the basic and extended markdown syntaxes. Reporting example that markuped up with Lisp LSX syntax. Testing the html template that embedding Lisp LSX.

Real world examples


Getting started

Use CLI:

install via NPM:

$ npm install -g menneu

and run Ménneu:

$ menneu README.md --raw -o README.pdf

Add shortcuts to Windows file explorer right-click 'Send to' menu

Prerequirements
$ npm install -g menneu
Install

Download the source archive from https://github.com/shellyln/menneu/archive/master.zip and extract it.

> cd menneu\shell-ext\windows
> make-sendto-shortcuts.cmd

Use APIs:

install via NPM:

$ npm install menneu --save

and import Ménneu in your code:

// index.mjs
import './extension'; // * To import without using webpack,
                      //   use node with the
                      //   `--experimental-modules --no-warnings` options.
                      // * If `node>=12`, `--es-module-specifier-resolution=node`
                      //   option is additionally required.
import { render } from 'menneu/modules';
import fs from 'fs';
import util from 'util';
const writeFileAsync = util.promisify(fs.writeFile);
 
(async () => {
    try {
        const buf = await render('# Hello!', {}, {
            rawInput: true,
            inputFormat: 'md',
            dataFormat: 'object',
            outputFormat: 'pdf',
        });
        await writeFileAsync('./hello.pdf', buf);
    } catch (e) {
        console.log(e);
    }
})();
// extension.js
const fs = require('fs');
 
require.extensions['.css'] = function (module, filename) {
    module.exports = fs.readFileSync(filename, 'utf8');
};

NOTE: To build it, you should use webpack + raw-loader (or other packagers and/or plugins) to load CSS as string.

You can also import from the .mjs file on a node with the --experimental-modules --no-warnings options enabled,
and import menneu/modules/* paths.

If you run it on node>=12, --es-module-specifier-resolution=node option is additionally required.

See these (1) (2) examples.

Use APIs on the browsers:

Install via NPM, or download UMD from release page.

If you wish to use UMD single file on browser, Please write as below:

  • index.html
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <head><meta charset="UTF-8">
    <script src="./menneu.min.js"></script><script>
    (async() => {
        try {
            const buf = await menneu.render('# Hello!', {}, {
                rawInput: true,
                inputFormat: 'md',
                dataFormat: 'object',
                outputFormat: 'html',
            });
            console.log((new TextDecoder).decode(buf));
        } catch (e) {
            console.log(e);
        }
    })();
    </script></head>

If you wish to use UMD single file on Node.js w/o installing react, Please write as below:

  • menneu-umd-bootstrap.js
    // Usage: echo "# Hello" | node ./menneu-umd-bootstrap.js - -of html
     
    const Module = require('module');
    const loader = Module._load;
    Module._load = (request, parent) => {
        if (request === 'react' || request === 'react-dom' || request === 'react-dom/server') {
            return ({});
        }
        return loader(request, parent);
    };
     
    const menneu = require('./menneu.min.js');
    menneu.run();

Features

Render markdown into HTML and PDF.

Markdown is parsed into HTML by markdown-it and converting from HTML into PDF by puppeteer .

Following markdown-it plugins are available by default:

You can append other plugins by configureing the menneu.config.js .

HTML source files are also available.

Render LSX template into HTML and PDF.

See Liyad for more informations about Lisp and LSX syntax and operators.

Lisp block expansion

In the markdown or HTML documents, you can start Lisp block. The block starts with %%%( and ends with pair parenthesis ) .

  • You should escape following characters in the document:
    • \ -> \\
    • """ -> \"\"\"
    • %%% -> \%\%\%

Conditional branch

%%%($last                           ;; "$last" is a function that evaluate parameters, and returns last parameter.
    ($set ($data isMorning) false)
    ($set ($data name) "World")
    nil                             ;; "nil" is zero length array. it will replace to zero length string by document processor.
)
 
%%%($=if ($get $data isMorning)
"""Markdown
## Good morning, %%%($get $data name)!
""")
 
%%%($=if ($not ($get $data isMorning))
"""Markdown
## Hello, %%%($get $data name)!
""")

is equivalent to

## Hello, World!

Repeating

Greeting
 
%%%($=for ($list "World" "Jane" "Joe")
"""Markdown
## Hello, %%%($get $data)!
""")
 
Good morning!

is equivalent to

Greeting
 
## Hello, World!
## Hello, Jane!
## Hello, Joe!
 
Good morning!

Variables

  • The data file is parsed and set to $data variable.

Data file:

{
    "foo": 1,
    "bar": "World"
}

Document template:

## Hello, %%%($get $data bar)!

Result:

<h2>Hello, World!</h2>
  • To define the variable, use $let function in the Lisp block.

Document template:

%%%($let a "A")
%%%($get a)

Result:

<p>A</p>
  • To set the value to the variable, use $set function in the Lisp block.

Document template:

%%%($let a "A")
%%%($set a "B")
%%%($get a)

Result:

<p>B</p>
  • To set the value to the object property or array index, you can also use $set function.

Document template:

%%%($let a (#    ;; "#" is object literal function.
    (foo 1)
    (bar ($list "World" "Jane" "Joe")) ))
 
%%%($set (a bar 1) "John")
%%%($get a bar 1)

Result:

<p>John</p>

Functions

Document template:

%%%($last
    ($defun fac (n)
        ($if (== n 0)
            1
            (* n ($self (- n 1))) ) )
    nil)
 
Factorial of 3 is %%%(fac 3).

Result:

<p>Factorial of 3 is 6.</p>

LSX DOM elements

You can markup standard HTML and SVG tags witten in LSX notation.

Document template:

%%%(style (@ (dangerouslySetInnerHTML ".content { font-style: italic; color: red; }")))

Result:

<style>.content { font-style: italic; color: red; }</style> 

Components

You also can markup with RedAgate tag-lib components.

Document template:

%%%(Greeting (@ (to "Menneu")) "Good morning!")
%%%(Svg (@ (width  100)
           (height 100)
           (unit "mm") )

module.exports = {
    ...
    components: {
        Greeting: (props) => `Hello, ${props.to}${props.children}`,
