This gem converts BBcode to Markdown. BBcode is parsed before conversion, checking whether the BBcode is valid.
The parser recognizes most "official tags":http://www.bbcode.org/reference.php and allows to easily extend this set with custom tags by editing tags.rb.

Add this to your Rails app's Gemfile
