My favorite programming language is Raku (formerly known as Perl 6). Most of my code is public, and I use auto-generated Markdown a lot for READMEs on github.com/tbrowder.
Yesterday, I successfully finished a good code workflow for producing documentation, using Raku, by converting text in Markdown to Rakudoc to PDF, thanks to the Raku modules produced and published by my friends in the Raku community.
The final product needs some tweaking for sure, but it's a reasonable proof-of-concept for a very valuable tool for developers. (Its final form is part of my Raku Advent article for 3 December 2022: Day 3: Santa and the Rakupod Wranglers.)
To learn more about Raku, visit raku.org and check IRC #raku for online discussions and help--it's a very welcoming community.

That's a nice start. :)
Hi Tom. Is this just a test post? If not, is it missing a link? I'm confused.
Hi, raiph. I just added the info. Sorry to be so late, but I was under great stress trying to finish my Advent article on time and didn't visit for a while.
I only just spotted your reply. I don't even remember what was missing! But I know I was just trying to be helpful, because that's pretty much the only reason I comment. So no need to be sorry -- late is infinitely better than never and I know I didn't mind in the first place. :)
