Simple Markdown plugin is just an simple markdown plugin for django-cms. It's brutally simple. Just a text area and you'll entered some markdown text and save it. And the reason why i make this is that, I really couldn't find any simple as stupid plugin for django-cms, all i've found was fancy with a lot of java script stuff.

This is not easy, It's hard, confusing. I doubt, double doubt that those people that keep saying installing this is easy are on something.
Since every application won't begins with love, this plugin developed to solve a problem. 2 days back, I've been using cms.plugin.text for handling html pages and related content, but when I've tried to use aws s3/cloudfront for my static files, i've stuck with CORS problem. So i've develop cmsplugin-simple-markdown to be used without any deps on js/css files.
Now these days, people all around the world are using it, They are happy with it, They go creazy with cmsplugin-simple-markdown, Even they name their child cmsplugin-simple-markdown, At least I did. ;)
