A Humane Web Text Generator

A lightweight markup language that takes (almost) plaintext and converts it into well formed HTML.


The only file that is necessary for the correct operation of Textile is classTextile.php from the project root directory. However, to use additional features you may need to install other files from the project tree.

For live installations only files and subdirectories from the master branch should be used. Code from other branches should not be used on live sites.


You’ll need to include the source file and instantiate a parser…

include "classTextile.php"; # adjust paths if needed.
$textile = new Textile();

Then, for input that you control, pass it to TextileThis(). Like so…

$output = $textile->TextileThis( $trusted_input );

If you are using Textile to format user-supplied input, blog comments for instance, use a TextileRestricted() call…

$output = $textile->TextileRestricted( $untrusted_input );
