Support rdiscount extensions #173

Hello, I have created a patch adding support for rdiscount extensions.

For example now you can do something like this:

    extensions: [smart, autolink]

The actual code is here (rdiscount-extensions branch): ctrochalakis/jekyll@b96516a


This looks good. Can you rebase this on top of the latest master? Converters have been changed to be plugins and this patch will need to adjust for that.


Three more things and I can merge this in: 1) Change the &:to_sym to the pre 1.8.7 syntax to make sure this works for older Rubys. 2) Include a test that exercises the option to verify it's doing what you intend. 3) Include "closes #173" in the commit message summary.




Awesome, looks like this would fix the SmartyPants issue I was discussing earlier.

Looks like all that's left is the issue closing message.


Just confirmed this fixes the issue for me:

Please to be merging :)


Merged in 0.7.0.
