lua-resty-hoedown

lua-resty-hoedown is a Markdown, SmartyPants, buffer, and html and href/url escaping library implementing LuaJIT bindings to Hoedown.

Hello World with lua-resty-hoedown

local hoedown = require "resty.hoedown"
hoedown[[
# Are you ready for the truth?

Now that there is the Tec-9, a crappy spray gun from South Miami.
This gun is advertised as the most popular gun in American crime.
Do you believe that shit? It actually says that in the little book
that comes with it: the most popular gun in American crime. Like
they're actually proud of that shit.

## I'm serious as a heart attack

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities
of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the
name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley
of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of
lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance
and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My
brothers.

This will return string containing:

Installation

Just place resty directory somewhere in your package.path. If you are using OpenResty, the default location would be /usr/local/openresty/lualib. Please check though that you do not overwrite the existing resty-directory if one exists already.

Compiling and Installing Hoedown C-library

These are just rudimentary notes. Better installation instructions will follow:

  1. First download Hoedown from here: https://github.com/hoedown/hoedown
  2. Run make
  3. Place libhoedown.so somewhere in the default search path for dynamic libraries of your operating system (or modify resty/hoedown/library.lua and point ffi_load("libhoedown") with full path to libhoedown.so.

Using LuaRocks or MoonRocks

If you are using LuaRocks >= 2.2:

$ luarocks install lua-resty-hoedown

If you are using LuaRocks < 2.2:

$ luarocks install --server=http://rocks.moonscript.org moonrocks
$ moonrocks install lua-resty-hoedown

MoonRocks repository for lua-resty-hoedown is located here: https://rocks.moonscript.org/modules/bungle/lua-resty-hoedown.

Lua API

There are some functions called free on the API (to be complete implementation of Hoedown). You don't really need to call :free() as the library automatically handles freeing the external resources using normal LuaJIT garbage collector (the library registers the garbage collector handlers with ffi.gc).

Document Processing Extensions

With extensions, you may extend how to document processing works. Here are the available extensions:

tables                = HOEDOWN_EXT_TABLES,
fenced_code           = HOEDOWN_EXT_FENCED_CODE,
footnotes             = HOEDOWN_EXT_FOOTNOTES,
autolink              = HOEDOWN_EXT_AUTOLINK,
strikethrough         = HOEDOWN_EXT_STRIKETHROUGH,
underline             = HOEDOWN_EXT_UNDERLINE,
highlight             = HOEDOWN_EXT_HIGHLIGHT,
quote                 = HOEDOWN_EXT_QUOTE,
superscript           = HOEDOWN_EXT_SUPERSCRIPT,
math                  = HOEDOWN_EXT_MATH,
no_intra_emphasis     = HOEDOWN_EXT_NO_INTRA_EMPHASIS,
space_headers         = HOEDOWN_EXT_SPACE_HEADERS,
math_explicit         = HOEDOWN_EXT_MATH_EXPLICIT,
disable_indented_code = HOEDOWN_EXT_DISABLE_INDENTED_CODE
Example
local hoedown = require "resty.hoedown"
print(hoedown.document.extensions.tables)
local doc = require "resty.hoedown.document"
local extensions = doc.extensions
print(extensions.tables)

HTML Rendering Flags

With HTML rendering flags you can control the HTML rendering process. Hare are the available flags:

skip_html = HOEDOWN_HTML_SKIP_HTML,
escape    = HOEDOWN_HTML_ESCAPE,
hard_wrap = HOEDOWN_HTML_HARD_WRAP,
use_xhtml = HOEDOWN_HTML_USE_XHTML
Example
local hoedown = require "resty.hoedown"
print(hoedown.html.flags.skip_html)
local html  = require "resty.hoedown.html"
local flags = html.flags
print(flags.use_xhtml)

HTML Tag States

These present values returned from resty.hoedown.html.is_tag function. The possible values are:

none  = HOEDOWN_HTML_TAG_NONE,
open  = HOEDOWN_HTML_TAG_OPEN,
close = HOEDOWN_HTML_TAG_CLOSE
Example
local hoedown = require "resty.hoedown"
print(hoedown.html.tag.open)
local html = require "resty.hoedown.html"
local tag  = html.tag
print(tag.open)

resty.hoedown

A helper library that you may require with a single statement.

string hoedown(source, opts)

Helper function to rendering. source is a string containing a source document. You can also pass in options with opts argument. Here are the different options that you may use (you can also skip passing options):

opts = {
    renderer    = ("html" or "html.toc" or function or nil),
    extensions  = (table or number or nil),
    max_nesting = (number or nil),
    flags       = (table or number or nil),
    nesting     = (number or nil),
    smartypants = (true or false or nil)
}
Example
local hoedown = require "resty.hoedown"
print(hoedown[[
# Hello World

Hi this is Markdown.
]])

local flags = hoedown.html.flags

print(hoedown([[
# Hello World

Hi this is Markdown.
]], {
    rendered    = "html.toc",
    nesting     = 1,
    flags       = { flags.use_xhtml, "escape", 1 },
    extensions  = { "underline", "quote" },
    smartypants = true
}))
