DEPRECATION NOTICE!

This project is deprecated in favor of chjj/marked. I never created the parser myself, the module was created in the early days of node as a wrapper for an existing browser based parser Showdown so if you are using this module and have problems with the parsing logic, I can't help you much as I'm not familiar with the inner details.

Pull requests are still welcomed - if you find a bug and fix it, then I'll pull the change in but I won't be fixing the bugs myself. Sorry for that.

node-markdown

node-markdown is based on Showdown parser and is meant to parse Markdown syntax into HTML code.

Installation

Use npm package manager

npm install node-markdown

Usage

Include Markdown parser

var md = require("node-markdown").Markdown;

Parse Markdown syntax into HTML

var html = md("**markdown** string");

Allow only default set of HTML tags to be used

var html = md("**markdown** string", true);

Allow only specified HTML tags to be used (default set of allowed attributes is used)

var html = md("**markdown** string", true, "p|strong|span");

Allow specified HTML tags and specified attributes

var html = md("**markdown** string", true, "p|strong|span", {
    "a":"href",        // 'href' for links
    "*":"title|style"  // 'title' and 'style' for all
});

Complete example

var md_text = "**bold** *italic* [link](http://www.neti.ee) `code block`",
    md_parser = require("node-markdown").Markdown;

// simple
console.log(md_parser(md_text));

// limit HTML tags and attributes
console.log(md_parser(md_text, true, 'h1|p|span'));

// limit HTML tags and keep attributes for allowed tags
var allowedTags = 'a|img';
    allowedAttributes = {
        'a':'href|style',
        'img': 'src',
        '*': 'title'
    }
console.log(md_parser(md_text, true, allowedTags, allowedAttributes));
