- Macros, commands, and other programming. Basics, a must read.
- Mark IV
- an introduction
- mtxrun script
- the helper script for all sorts of ConTeXt-related things, from individual runs to managing the installation tree
- context script
- it has two main uses: (1) compiling ConTeXt MkIV documents, and (2) recompiling the ConTeXt core format after you change one of the source files.
- Visual Debugging
- show the nasty details of your code, to understand and tweak ConTeXt typesetting.
- Buffers are named chunks of text, saved by ConTeXt to be retrieved by the user later.
- LaTeX users call them "packages", DTP users "plug-ins"
- PDF format output
- ConTeXt can define the set of PDF Boxes defined by the PDF standard. It can create PDF/A and PDF/X (ISO standard) compliant outputs, and take into account PDF Print Options.
- a rather common variant on macros, with usefull properties.

- Running ConTeXt without a shell
- to generate documents via web services, or use a scheduled batch process.
- Shell scripts
- while context and mtxrun already automate a lot, bash scripts can help.
