Add Math support (MathJaX) to blackfriday.v2 #412
Add Math support (MathJaX) to blackfriday.v2
I would like to not merge any changes that significantly change the way a source document is interpreted until we have CommonMark support (meaning that we can exercise their very exhaustive set of test cases, in addition to ours).
There is another very similar PR: #288. There's some extensive discussion on it about ideas how a math extension could be implemented without altering the semantics of a source Markdown document. The gist is that MathJaX support could be added completely outside of Blackfriday core, as a drop-in renderer that does two custom things:
Since the above seems to be a viable idea, I'm doubly reluctant to merge this functionality into Blackfriday core without seeing it tried out (or at least discussed in more detail if others don't see it as viable as I do).
