I'm looking for alternatives to LaTeX for documenting my bachelor thesis and I was thinking of asciidoc. I use it for nearly all documentation I write but I'm not sure if it matches the requirements here. Has anyone wrote something like that with asciidoc? Any recommendations?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
You can use a plain text markup as a first stage that gets converted into LaTeX and therefore gives you many of the text-formatting benefits of LaTeX. See Text formatter tools
Have a look at MutiMarkdown which converts to LaTex from a markup similar to ASCIIDOC. As you probably know, Markdown is used on this website and MultiMarkdown extends that with support for tables etc.
Also see PanDoc for conversions between many formats.
