a company has by the complexity of its url structure....

use of Markdown in the name of an extension of the syntax

Hi,

 

I am developping an extension of the Markdown syntax in order to enable the embedding

of RDF markup into Markdown text. Unlike RDFa, it is closer to Markdown's philosophy than

from html markup.

 

Here is my question: is a name like Semantic Markdown suitable for such an extension,

without being in conflict with the terms of licence of Markdown?

 

Indeed, this work is/will:

 

- be free (MIT licence or equivalent)

- credit Markdown (and pandoc, etc) as root of the project

- be an attempt to propose an extension of the Md syntax for a special purpose

- explicitely distinguish Markdown and this **extension** of the Markdown syntax.

 

Best regards,

 

Jibé Bohuon

re: markdown wiki for compiling documentation

good suggestion.

and along those lines, perhaps go all the way, and 
use a wiki app coded by pandoc's john macfarlane.

a running demo, with a sandbox, is at:

markdown wiki for compiling documentation

Hi,
I'm very new to this group.
I've just learned what markdow is and ho it works.
I need a way, to produce some docs. I need a collaborative ( wiki?) repo, accessible for more people with ACL right.
I also need to export the doc on various format (pdf, doc, HTML...).
Could it be the right way?

TIA
Renato

Markdown, Rich Text Snippets for web

Was browsing google webmaster tools, and reading up on rich text snippets. (RTS)  These are a raft of additional span tags that supposedly make the web easier for search engines to parse.

I'm still mulling over their worth.  Or rather:  If I have to insert all this additional markup by hand, then it's not worth it at all.

If on the other hand, I can find a post processor that slaps an "article" schema tag around the page, defines the first occurrence of an H1 tag as being a Title.

It occurs to me that some clever use of CSS could be used to implement RTS as either an inprocess or post process script.  E.g.  CSS class names that map to schema tag names would be automatically wrapped.

Anyone done this, or know of other tools to take the pain out of RTS


Respectfully,

Sherwood of Sherwood's Forests

Comparison of different flavors of Markdown

At the risk of starting another shi^W reasonable discussion between
mature adults, is there a site or page that compares, or even lists,
the various flavors of Markdown? I've found comparisons of Markdown
with other languages, and references on different Markdown plug-ins
for other environments (Wordpress, etc.), but not a simple list of
what different versions of the script people have made public. (And
yes, I will most likely customize whichever version I choose to add
more specific features that I want. That wouldn't be the most
questionably necessary development I've done on this project.)

crowd-sourcing for a browser-based rich-text editor
based on markdown and/or commonmark, whatever.

one of marjin's earlier projects created _codemirror_,
which is targeted at code. and he now attacks prose.
he also wrote "eloquent javascript", so he might be
one of the best people to write this javascript code.
