Define amsthm environment in YAML front matter and use it with a native pandoc div in the main document. Using the templates and filter provided, HTML and LaTeX output using amsthm can be realized.

See the repository in ickc/pandoc-amsthm.

You can also read the README here.

Demo

A demo is provided in test/. In command line, you can cd into the folder and make should compile these examples. Click and see the results:

There’s also another makefile makefile-local to test local installation of the amsthm templates and filters. The templates should be copied to ~/.pandoc/templates/ and the pandoc-amsthm.py should be copied to one of your PATH. You can then run make -f makefile-local to see if you set it up correctly.

The equations in the example in the demo is copied from Riemann hypothesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Commands

pandoc -s --toc --template=<pathto>pandoc-amsthm.html --mathjax -o ...
pandoc -s --toc --template=<pathto>pandoc-amsthm.html5 --mathjax -o ...

Other Usages

Because of how the filter works, a side benefit/unofficial usage is:

---
amsthm:
  unofficial-use:	[flushright]
...
<div align="right" class="flushright">
This text should flushed to the right.
</div>
