If I really need more complex I might just use good ol' latex

Which really is the only time where I need something more complex than markdown.

That's what I thought also, but in fact markdown is never enough if you look at it closely :

  • on GitHub I'm using "markdown plus" some GitHub extensions
  • on dev.to, I'm using "markdown plus" some handy native liquid tags
  • with a static site generator, I'm using "markdown plus" a static front matter thingy

The question then is whether to use multiple incompatible "markdown plus extension" or a standardized better format like asciidoc.
