This plugin is an alternative to the
markdown plugin (which is using
pandoc (using Pandoc, which handles many more input
misaka (yet another custom Markdown implementation). All the
plugins can be used on one site, provided that file extensions differ.
This one is based on mistune which is impresively fast (only 50% slower than misaka) while being pure python.
For context: CommonMark is 2.5x slower than Mistune, and Python Markdown is a mind-boggling 60x slower.
This plugin does not support MarkdownExtension plugins. They are only
compatible with the
markdown plugin and
Research on using Mistune extensions with Nikola is needed.
