Abstract: There are .MD Files that cover a specific topic in a good format for our collaboration platform and we are all used to write and read them. Our customers need this information in a similar fashion, but we want to add our logo and corporate footer, table of contents and such things. We want to send it as PDF.
Currently we open an MS-Word Template and copy-paste the HTML that gets displayed from the MD editor (e.g. stackedit.io) into it and then polish it and make sure everything looks good and keeps to the CI (fonts, etc.).
We want to optimize that process. We are flexible when it comes to the template, MS Word is not a requirement. But we should be able to modify it relatively easy (so we don't want to learn LaTeX first).
A big plus would be if the solution can be run automatically so that I can add a trigger to our version control system and automatically generate the PDF whenever one of the MDs was changed.
If some scripting is required for the solution, that is fine but I will not write and maintain a new program for it, so just a library is not sufficient.
Payment: This is a business process and as such commercial solutions are acceptable.
Operating System: Windows 10, Linux, BSD, OSX are all fine. SaaS / Cloud is fine. For cloud solutions or similar, they and their servers need to be located in the EU/EWG because of data protection agreements we have with our customers.
GUI is not required but would be nice for the template design.
