Usage is simple. Have a look at our Manpages: (the page via, or read

man 7 man-pages
man man

which has some more words about conventions how to create manpages. The render plugin will map Toplevel headlines to manpage sections, so choose some of the Section names specified in the above documentation.


This is an early first release. if you have suggestions, etc….

Just one. How about you zip it or tar it so the plugin manager can be used. Thanks, davew 8-)
