BlueCloth

Important: this repository is abandoned in favor of much quicker implementations such as bluecloth 2.0 and RDiscount.

This is a fork of BlueCloth 1.0.0 (2004/08/24) from its trunk. It's been created to fix some of the outstanding bugs in its implementation.

The plan is to first clean up the messy test suite (using RSpec), make existing tests pass (a lot of them fail right now) and, finally, add tests for annoying bugs and making them pass also.

I also want to break down its implementation not to be entirely contained in one file ("lib/bluecloth.rb") anymore. Together with a nicer test suite, that will probably make it easier to maintain.

About

Original version by John Gruber http://daringfireball.net/.
Ruby port by Michael Granger http://www.deveiate.org/.

BlueCloth is a Ruby implementation of Markdown, a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. To quote from the project page: Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid XHTML (or HTML).
