Content Warning: Github, open-source, pandoc, markdown

I had a seemingly simple issue.

I wanted to use Pandoc to convert my Jekyll posts so I could use Pandoc’s markdown, mostly for citations (Gonzales 2015) and code highlighting.

Pandoc would convert everything but wouldn’t include the Jekyll YAML frontmatter in the output post, so I made a small python script to handle it for me, built mostly using the pypandoc pyyaml libraries. Hurray.
