📅 2019-Jul-06 ⬩ ✍️ Ashwin Nanjappa ⬩ 🏷️ ⬩ 📚 Archive

Pandoc can be used to convert Markdown files to HTML webpages. If you are hosting these webpages online, it might be useful to get some stats on them. Google Analytics is a popular service to do this.

<!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
<script async src="https://www.googletagmanager.com/gtag/js?id=UA-xxxxxxxxx-1"></script>
<script>
  window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || [];
  function gtag(){dataLayer.push(arguments);}
  gtag('js', new Date());
  gtag('config', 'UA-xxxxxxxxx-1');
</script>
$ pandoc --standalone --include-in-header=header.txt in.markdown -o out.html

Tried with: Pandoc 1.19.2.4 and Ubuntu 18.04
