Following on from my last post on formatting a Markdown document into PDF using FSharp.Markdown.Pdf, if you don’t like the default styling (which I tried to mimic style Github formats Markdown documents with) you can set your own styling for the different types of Markdown elements by going down a level of abstraction.
The FSharp.Markdown.Pdf.MarkdownStyleNames module defines all the names of styles used to format the different Markdown elements (e.g. heading 1-6, code block, listing 1-3, etc.) into PDF. To override the default styles, you need to:
- Instantiate an instance of the Document type from the MigraDoc.DocumentObjectModel namespace.
- Add the predefined style names from the aforementioned MarkdownStyleNames module to the document’s collection of styles.
- Tweak the style to your liking.
- Call the FSharp.Markdown.Pdf.PdfFormatting.formatMarkdown function with the Document value.
- Voila! You now have an instance of PdfDocument which has been formatted with your custom styling.
