[OS X TeX] Is there an easy / elegant way to access Pandoc via a GUI in TeXshop (or Mac OS X)?

When you look into ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/Inactive
you will find a `pandoc` folder with two example engines.

(You may have to move the Engine folder out of ~/Library/TeXShop and restart TeXShop to get the updated files.)

markdown2pdf is no longer supported by current versions of pandoc, it uses -t pdf instead.

I'm using:

    set path= ($path /usr/texbin /usr/local/bin $HOME/.cabal/bin)
    pandoc --template=./default.latex "$1" -o "`basename '$1' .md`".pdf

right now.

You can specify a `--latex-engine=xelatex|lualatex` instead.
