book-publishing system in Racket


Pollen: the book is a program Build Status

A book-publishing system written in Racket. Unstable. Incomplete. Et cetera. It’s becoming more civilized. But this is the actual software I use to publish & maintain my web-based book Butterick’s Practical Typography.

If you think documents should be programmable, you’ll love it.
If not, you can move along.

Pollen gives you access to a full programming language (Racket) with a text-based syntax that makes it easy to embed code within your documents.

Using Racket 6.0+, install from the command line:

raco pkg install pollen

And update like so:

raco pkg update --update-deps pollen
