As a guy attempting to transition from macOS to Linux:

Pages to anything else, please.

A quick Google suggests that the most straightforward way is to run an Automator script to convert everything to PDF using Pages itself.

Yeah. But then you can't edit it. Converting it to opendoc or something would be more useful.

Maybe this ( http://tyorex.com/iWorkConverter/ ) and then a batch doc->odt converter? (Though for the sake of sanity, I recommend avoid word processors where possible.)

Pages will export to Word format, then use pandoc to generate markdown files. (Just one idea)

But then I have to keep a Mac around, just to convert documents. Not ideal.

You can do this via iCloud too (through the browser).

Yeah, I know about that. I'm a government employee. Cloud services are mostly off limits to me.
