I would like to find a CLI utility that replaces the inline links of a markdown file to reference-style links, a la this example.
On this website, I found a pandoc command that does something similar:
pandoc --from markdown --to markdown --reference-links --output outputfile.md inputfile.md
However, it's not a perfect solution. Running it on my jekyll blog posts deletes their YAML front matter block. The command also uses the link text for the reference, but I would prefer the number (like in the example).
Bonus if it can wrap the converted text afterwards.
