I'm looking for some converter LaTeX -> ConTeXt and perhaps LaTeX <- ConTeXt (just in case). I can write simple script and implement translation of basic syntax, but perhaps someone did it?

    You can try pandoc, which can parse LaTeX and generate ConTeXt output.

If pandoc conversion fits your need, then you can directly use it in ConTeXt using the filter module:


      filter={pandoc -f latex -t context -o \externalfilteroutputfile},


  This is a \textbf{\LaTeX} document that includes a \emph{table}

    One & Two \\
    Three & Four \\

which gives

enter image description here

Note that the conversion is not perfect because Pandoc's internal document model is not rich enough to store all LaTeX/ConTeXt documents.

  • Well, pandoc isn't perfect. Probably I need to write own script later. Sep 29, 2013 at 21:40
  • Writing a parser for tex isn't easy. Have a look at xii.tex :-)

  • I have skills, but it is time consuming. And I'm not sure if I want to use ConTeXt, perhaps I will stick to LaTeX. Sep 30, 2013 at 0:50
