PHP-Markdown-extra compatible Javascript markdown syntax parser

branch: master
README.md

js-markdown-extra

ver 1.2.3 based on PHP Markdown Extra 1.2.5
originally developed by boumankan

What's this?

js-markdown-extra is a experimental JavaScript port of PHP Markdown Extra.

PHP Markdown Extra demo

I couldn't retain complete comaptibility because of difference between PHP's regular expression and JavaScript's one, but it can convert most of simple markdown text. perhaps.

Demo

You can try in your hand.

How to use

Load this script in HTML and call Markdown function.

    //example :
    var html = Markdown( text );

Notice

It has possibility of entering infinite loop by some user input because I try to port PHP Markdown Extra with incompatible regular expression test. Please stand by to kill your browser process. I prefer to use it under dual core CPU.
