What is pencraft.space good for?

You may already be using a cloud storage space — like Yandex Disk, Google Drive, or Dropbox — to store and share files or folders. With pencraft.space, a shared plain text file can turn into a nicely formatted web-ready note with pictures, tables, and even mathematical formulae if you like. To achieve this, add some Markdown and TeX formatting to a public plain text file, and use its shareable public link to see it on pencraft.space.

What is Markdown?

Markdown is a popular "easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format" (as described by its creator) that can be converted to a visually formatted HTML web document, while still remaining easily readable as an unprocessed plain text.

bold This is of **particular importance**!
cursive This calls for _special_ consideration.
image ![Image title](<public_link>),
[image 300x200] [Image title](<public_link>)
video [video] [Title](<public_link>)
audio [audio] [Title](<public_link>)
heading # Main title, ## Section title, ### Subsection title
code ```console.log('Cheers!');```
quote > The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

For more Markdown options, see for instance Markdown Guide.

What is TeX?

TeX is a popular plain text format for scientific formulae. While most blogs, social media, and other online publishing platforms won't allow for insertion of human-readable formulae, pencraft.space will make your formulae shine.

formula $$E_k = \frac{m v^2}{2}$$
variable $\Phi (x)$

To add custom attributes to a publication, put the following block at the very beginning of your file:
