Asciidoc Filter

The asciidoc filter takes asciidoc content, like this:

= Hello, AsciiDoc!
Doc Writer <doc@example.com>

An introduction to http://asciidoc.org[AsciiDoc].

== First Section

* item 1
* item 2

puts "Hello, World!"

And converts it using the asciidoc command:

- example1.adoc|asciidoctor

Custom asciidoctor stylesheets can be specified:

- example2.adoc|asciidoctor:
    - asciidoctor: { 'stylesheet' : 'readthedocs.css' }
