One thing I hate about LaTeX: Whenever i write software, I write it in a self-explanatory way, such that I can still understand what's going on 2 weeks later. With LaTeX, the syntax is so convoluted that I cannot make my macros readable, no matter how hard I try...

Thats one of the reasons why i switched to pandoc markdown. This way i can substitute latex macros with pandoc filters (usually written in python) and actually comprehend what I am doing...

Yeah, I heard of Pandoc as well. A friend of mine wrote his Bachelor Thesis using Pandoc. As weird as this may sound though: I love LaTeX for writing documents, I just hate it whenever I write macros 🙈
