  • The ikiwiki wiki engine use Markdown as it's default language. It's a bit different as wikis go but it's quite good when you get use to it and it's written in Perl.

    -- "It's not magic, it's work..."
  • I have a script that takes a shell command as its arguments, picks up the X11 clipboard contents using xclip, passes it as STDIN to that command, captures the STDOUT, and puts it back in the clipboard. I have a few keyboard shortcuts set up in my window manager that use that script with a Markdown conversion script. So I just copy the Markdown text, hit a key combo, then paste, and it comes out as HTML.

    And on use.perl you can just use the site’s own Preview button to check the results.

  • I use Markdown quite a bit, so it made sense to me to make the effort to integrate it and use it from within emacs, where I spend a lot of my time. And, with the Firefox extension It's All Text, it all fits together nicely.

    I had written about the whole thing here [].

    • Thanks for the link to your post. Even though I don't use Emacs, I still found it an interesting read. (as in: what are other programs doing?)
