Discount Markdown Processor for Ruby
RDiscount Gem releases are published to RubyForge and can be installed as follows:
$ [sudo] gem install rdiscount
The RDiscount sources are available via Git:
$ git clone git://github.com/rtomayko/rdiscount.git $ cd rdiscount $ rake --tasks
For more information, see the project page.
RDiscount implements the basic protocol popularized by RedCloth and adopted by BlueCloth:
require 'rdiscount' markdown = RDiscount.new("Hello World!") puts markdown.to_html
Inject RDiscount into your BlueCloth-using code by replacing your bluecloth require statements with the following:
begin require 'rdiscount' BlueCloth = RDiscount rescue LoadError require 'bluecloth' end
Discount is free software; it is released under a BSD-style license that allows you to do as you wish with it as long as you don't attempt to claim it as your own work. RDiscount adopts Discount's license verbatim. See the file COPYING for more information.
