Bugzilla Markdownjs

This is a markdown extension for bugzilla. All rendering is done client side through javascript. It dynamically adds markdown elements to comments and allows you to switch between the raw view and markdown. It has a live preview when submitting or commenting a bug.

#Features

  • Markdown parsing of all comments
  • Ability to view raw comment text
  • Live markdown preview when creating or commenting
  • Unobtrusive & customizable styling
  • Formatting help information

#Installation

Copy the Markdownjs directory into <bugzilla-root>/extensions directory and run checksetup.pl.

##Dependencies

#Compatibility

Tested with buzillia:

  • 4.4.4

Please help this module by testing on more versions.

#Overview

The extension finds all elements with the class bz_commen_text, takes their text passes it to markdown-js, and appends the markdown-js output into a new div after the comment. The raw comment is hidden by default. You can toggle between the markdown element and raw element by clicking on a link within the comment.

For the comment previews, the extension uses the jquery on method to bind to the input events of the #comment element. It takes the input, passes it through markdown-js and places the output in the #bz_preview element.

This extension relies on the following template hooks: global/footer-end, global/header-additional_header, bug/edit-after_comments_textarea, and bug/create/create-end.

The styles.css set the white-space to normal, and change the font to be more readable. If you want better styling, send me a pull request.

Note: You could, in theory, remove jQuery and just use the YUI library included with bugzilla. I did not use the YUI because, well, I'm a lazy hack.
