Splitting a document with custom pandoc lua writer

Recommended Posts

I would like to split a LaTeX document into several pandoc markdown documents. The split should happen at each \section{section_name} and the section name should be used as output name for the corresponding markdown file. So a latex file like

\section{name1}
some text
\section{name2}
more text

should be split into two markdown documents with names name1.md and name2.md. Is this possible with a pandoc custom writer in Lua at all? I couldn't find any useful example in the documentation https://pandoc.org/custom-writers.html#new-stylesite on how to approach this or if it is even possible with custom writers to generate multiple output files from a single input file.
