What is it

A Python Markdown extension that replaces inline dot graph defintions with an image tag pointing to the generated graph image.

Please note that I developed this specifically for my Perlican based blog and hence output directories and other stuff is hard coded.


Checkout and easy_install or pip install it:

$ git clone git://
$ cd markdown-dot
$ easy_install .


Activate the dot extension and place the graph defintions in your markup like so:

{% dot output.png
	digraph G {
		S0 -> A [label="-"]
		A -> B [label="-"]
		A -> C [label=">"]

		A [peripheries=2]
		B [peripheries=2]
		C [peripheries=2]

The block above will then be replaced with an img tag pointing to the generated png file.

If the file name starts with a !, the image will still be generated but no img tag will be included in the result.
