If you’ve been reading my blog at all you’ve probably noticed that I am not a lawyer. Sadly when starting your own business, there are legal documents involved.
Now I don’t know about you, but doing find and replace on my agreements for every new client sounded tedious and not fun. So I’m working on a way to make it more programmer-ish. Basically I’m taking the Jekyll approach to legal documentation. Markdown with a YAML header goes in, custom-tailored and nicely formatted PDF comes out.
I’ll definitely be releasing the code properly sometime soon. But in the mean time, here’s a gist to whet your appetite. If you have any ideas, or if you’re a lawyer who might want in on this hotness, please do get in touch. Thanks!
