asciidoc - converts an AsciiDoc text file to HTML or DocBook
asciidoc [OPTIONS] FILE
The asciidoc(1) command translates the AsciiDoc text file FILE to DocBook or HTML. If FILE is - then the standard input is used.
-a, --attribute=ATTRIBUTE Define or delete document attribute. ATTRIBUTE is formatted like NAME=VALUE. Command-line attributes take precedence over document and configuration file attributes. Alternate acceptable forms are NAME (the VALUE defaults to an empty string); NAME! (delete the NAME attribute); NAME=VALUE@ (do not override document or configuration file attributes). Values containing spaces should be enclosed in double-quote characters. This option may be specified more than once. A special attribute named trace controls the output of diagnostic information. -b, --backend=BACKEND Backend output file format: docbook45, xhtml11, html4, html5, slidy, wordpress or latex (the latex backend is experimental). You can also use the backend alias names html (aliased to xhtml11) or docbook (aliased to docbook45). Defaults to html. The --backend option is also used to manage backend plugins (see PLUGIN COMMANDS). -f, --conf-file=CONF_FILE Use configuration file CONF_FILE.Configuration files processed in command-line order (after implicit configuration files). This option may be specified more than once. --doctest Run Python doctests in asciidoc module. -d, --doctype=DOCTYPE Document type: article, manpage or book. The book document type is only supported by the docbook backend. Default document type is article. -c, --dump-conf Dump configuration to stdout. --filter=FILTER Specify the name of a filter to be loaded (used to load filters that are not auto-loaded). This option may be specified more than once. The --filter option is also used to manage filter plugins (see PLUGIN COMMANDS). -h, --help [TOPIC] Print help TOPIC. --help topics will print a list of help topics, --help syntax summarizes AsciiDoc syntax, --help manpage prints the AsciiDoc manpage. -e, --no-conf Exclude implicitly loaded configuration files except for those named like the input file (infile.conf and infile-backend.conf). -s, --no-header-footer Suppress document header and footer output. -o, --out-file=OUT_FILE Write output to file OUT_FILE. Defaults to the base name of input file with backend extension. If the input is stdin then the outfile defaults to stdout. If OUT_FILE is - then the standard output is used. -n, --section-numbers Auto-number HTML article section titles. Synonym for --attribute numbered. --safe Enable safe mode. Safe mode is disabled by default. AsciiDoc safe mode skips potentially dangerous scripted sections in AsciiDoc source files. --theme=THEME Specify a theme name. Synonym for --attribute theme=THEME. The --theme option is also used to manage theme plugins (see PLUGIN COMMANDS). -v, --verbose Verbosely print processing information and configuration file checks to stderr. --version Print program version number.
The asciidoc(1) --filter, --backend and --theme options are used to install, remove and list AsciiDoc filter, backend and theme plugins. Syntax: asciidoc OPTION install ZIP_FILE [PLUGINS_DIR] asciidoc OPTION remove PLUGIN_NAME [PLUGINS_DIR] asciidoc OPTION list asciidoc OPTION build ZIP_FILE PLUGIN_SOURCE Where: OPTION asciidoc(1) --filter, --backend or --theme option specifying the type of plugin. PLUGIN_NAME A unique plugin name containing only alphanumeric or underscore characters. ZIP_FILE A Zip file containing plugin resources, the name must start with the plugin name e.g. my_filter-1.0.zip packages filter my_filter. PLUGINS_DIR The directory containing installed plugins. Each plugin is contained in its own separate subdirectory which has the same name as the plugin. PLUGINS_DIR defaults to the $HOME/.asciidoc/filters (for filter plugins) or $HOME/.asciidoc/backends (for backend plugins) or $HOME/.asciidoc/themes (for theme plugins). PLUGIN_SOURCE The name of a directory containing the plugin source files or the name of a single source file. The plugin commands perform as follows: install Create a subdirectory in PLUGINS_DIR with the same name as the plugin then extract the ZIP_FILE into it. remove Delete the PLUGIN_NAME plugin subdirectory and all its contents from the PLUGINS_DIR. list List the names and locations of all installed filter or theme plugins (including standard plugins installed in the global configuration directory). build Create a plugin file named ZIP_FILE containing the files and subdirectories specified by PLUGIN_SOURCE. File and directory names starting with a period are skipped.
