== MarkdownFu
"Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows
you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then
convert it to structurally valid XHTML (or HTML)."
Markdown was created by {John Gruber}[]
MarkdownFu is a Rails (ActiveRecord) plugin which will convert attributes from
Markdown into html and store the result in the <tt>[attribute_name]_html</tt> attribute.
You will need to define such attribute in your migrations for each markdown
enabled attribute in your models.
You may define multiple markdown attributes per model and they will be inherited
to subclasses using Single Table Inheritance.
== Example
class Page < ActiveRecord::Base
# stores the html version of content into content_html
markdown :content
# stores html version of markdown_body into converted_body
markdown :markdown_body, :converted_body
== Credits
- Originally based on textilizefu[] by adelcambre.
- Francesc Esplugas Marti - Initial implementation
- Bernardo de Padua - Rewritten to support multiple markdown attributes per
model and added tests.
