Ruby-BBcode-to-MD

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.

Example

"This is [b]bold[/b] and this is [i]italic[/i].".bbcode_to_md

=>

This is **bold** and this is *italic*.

Installation

Add this to your Rails app's Gemfile

gem 'ruby-bbcode-to-md'

or use the repo link

gem 'ruby-bbcode-to-md', :git => git://github.com/rikkit/ruby-bbcode-to-md.git

Then run

bundle install

And the gem is available in your application

Note: Do not forget to restart your server!

Development

Known issues

  • The parser doesn't handle nested quotes correctly.

Testing

Run

bundle install
bundle exec rake test

in the source directory to run the unit tests. Edit ruby_bbcode_test.rb to add tests.
