Leaf Markdown

Language Build Status codecov GitHub license

A Markdown renderer for Vapor and Leaf. This uses the Vapor Markdown package to wrap cmark (though a fork is used to make it work with Swift PM), so it understands Common Mark. A quick reference guide for Common Mark can be found here. It also supports Github Flavored Markdown.


Once set up, you can use it in your Leaf template files like any other tag:


Where you have passed myMarkdown into the view as something like:

# Hey #

Check out my *awesome* markdown! It is easy to use in `tags`


Add as dependency

Add Leaf Markdown as a dependency in your Package.swift file:

    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "", .upToNextMajor(from: "2.0.0"))

Register with Leaf

To add the tag to Leaf, add it to your LeafTagConfig:

try services.register(LeafProvider())
var tags = LeafTagConfig.default()
tags.use(Markdown(), as: "markdown")

Note: it's important that you register the LeafProvider first otherwise this will override your LeafTagConfig.

Don't forget to import LeafMarkdown in the file you register the tag with import LeafMarkdown.
