   Downloading the site as a .zip file and reading the README.md tells us
that pandoc is required. This is a format converter, apparently based on
Haskell given the large number of dependencies to build it. But, pandoc will
convert from markdown to LaTeX. I don't know the exact procedure as I've not
yet taken the time to install all dependencies to pandoc and build it. The
pandoc website has documentation.
