This is awesome, http://www.guillaumelobet.be/publications/ has one paper with a "lens" link. More of this please!

This really looks great! However, there should be an easy way for those of us who are not programmers (but know the basics of HTML or Markdown) to implement Lens on our websites... I know that Martin Fenner has made a Pandoc writer which generates JATS XML (https://github.com/mfenner/pandoc-jats). It still remains a problem to know how to format the input .md file so as to get a Lens-compatible xml (what tags to use, etc). Is there perhaps a Markdown template file for journal articles, which one could modify as need be?

At the moment it's been optimised to work with publisher XML, which is
the xml that is used to send documents to pubmed, there is not
markdown template, it would be a great side project for someone to
take on.

I'm hoping that we can get a blog post out soonish that will provide a
good introductory guide to extending lens. Lens has a function that
converts from XML -> lens format, and to get this to work with
markdown, you would probably want to extend that function. It might be
possible to extend that function with some of ht pandoc work, but it
would need a bit of checking.
