Markdown for Fantom

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Sunday Funday project for today – Markdown for Fantom:

https://bitbucket.org/afrankvt/markdown

Markdown is a great little plain-text format created by John Gruber that converts nicely to HTML. Fantom’s own Fandoc was heavily inspired by Markdown. We just simplified a few things and added some Fantom conventions in a few places. But I’ve wanted the full Markdown syntax at my disposal for some time now.

Luckily it was a pretty simple project – I was able to essentially take the great Markdownj work as-is and wrap with a native Fantom API. Code is available over at BitBucket and is licensed under the BSD license.
