This software was done in the bare minimum time to scratch an itch I had.
If you ask me nicely, I'll write some docs and pop it on the CPAN.
I also love patches. Please send them to me. :)
Dist::Zilla to install.
$ git clone https://github.com/pjf/Markdown-phpBB.git $ cd Markdown-phpBB $ dzil install
$ md2phpbb somefile.md # Convert from file $ echo "*Hello*" | md2phpbb # ...or from STDIN
Output is always sent to STDOUT.
I found that phpBB syntax keeps getting in the way, but some of my favourite communities still use it. I use vimperator and vim to write all my text, so a command which lets me write in markdown and convert to phpBB was obvious.
Of most use is
%!md2phpbb in vim, which will replace your current
buffer (written in markdown) with the phpBB equivalent code. You can even
bind it to a key (place in your
:nmap <F5> :%!md2phpbb<CR>
If you're using vimperator, phpBB will get in the way of using CTRL-I to
invoke vim. You can allow CTRL-E (or another key of your choice) to also
invoke the editor by adding the following to your
:inoremap <C-e> <C-i>
