wp-gfm is the WordPress plugin that convert from GitHub Flavored Markdown by using the PHP-Markdown or GitHub Render API.

Dependencies

How to work

The plugin has two conversions.

[markdown] as shortcode for PHP-Markdown, convert by using \Michelf\Markdown class inside WordPress.

[gfm] as shortcode for GitHub Flavored Markdown, convert by using the Render API outside WordPress. Default Render API is GitHub Render API, limits requests to 60 per hour for unauthenticated requests. Alternatives Render API that works on heroku is here: https://github.com/makotokw/ruby-markdown-render-api

Installation

Download from https://github.com/makotokw/wp-gfm/releases and upload to /path/to/wp-content/plugins/wp-gfm

PHP-Markdown (Recommended)

This conversion depends on PHP Markdown Lib 1.7.0.

Usage

Use [markdown][/markdown] as shortcode on entry.

Example:

[markdown]
| First Header  | Second Header |
| ------------- | ------------- |
| Content Cell  | Content Cell  |
| Content Cell  | Content Cell  |
[/markdown]

Fenced code blocks

Example:

[markdown]
```ruby
require 'redcarpet'
markdown = Redcarpet.new("Hello World!")
puts markdown.to_html
```
[/markdown]

Table of content

left aligned toc.

[TOC]

right aligned toc.

[>TOC]

Example:

[markdown]
# headLineOne

## something

[TOC]

## something more
[/markdown]

Embed content

Supported embed markdown file by [embed_markdown] shortcode.

[embed_markdown url="https://raw.githubusercontent.com/makotokw/wp-gfm/master/README.md"]

Option

Admin > Settings > WP GFM

  • AutoLink (default: no)
  • Code block template
    • (default: <pre class="prettyprint lang-{{lang}}" title="{{title}}">{{codeblock}}</pre> )
<pre class="prettyprint lang-ruby">require 'redcarpet'
markdown = Redcarpet.new("Hello World!")
puts markdown.to_html
</pre>

You can use google-code-prettify if you want to allow syntax highlighting.

GitHub Render API

This way is not good. If there are 5 shortcodes in page, the plugin require 5 HTTP requests.

Setup

  • Open WP GFM Settings and set Render URL

Usage

Use [gfm][/gfm] as shortcode on entry.

[gfm]
```ruby
require 'redcarpet'
markdown = Redcarpet.new("Hello World!")
puts markdown.to_html
```
[/gfm]
