that's an endorsement

interesting to see asciidoctor.org
has this quote from linus torvalds...

>   Use AsciiDoc for document markup. 
>   Really.  It's actually readable by humans, 
>   easier to parse and way more flexible than XML.

kudos and major props

david said:
>   I made something similar a few years ago

yes, you did indeed.

and i remember now thinking back then that it was brilliant.

you even anticipated the url-too-long problem by using bitly,
as well as combining several hashify into a single longer one.

and this reminds me that other people have also been using
the store-the-document-in-the-query-string approach recently.

but as far as i know, you were one of the first. so kudos for that.

do you know of any previous usage? if not, then major props...

and now that you've had some years to ponder this technique,
have you come up with any ideas for slick and inventive uses?

not that it needs any, it stands on its own just for being clever,
but if it has any additional functionality, i'd love to hear about it.

==============================

this text (in markdown format) is stored in the u.r.l., and  
then converted and displayed when that u.r.l. is visited.

that is, some code on channelurl.com:

- takes the u.r.l. -- specifically, the query-string -- and 

- unpacks it to get the underlying markdown text, 

- converts it to .html, and then 

- displays that .html.

so this text is not stored -- *does not exist* -- elsewhere.  
it is **only** in the query-string.  if you changed that, you  
would change the message itself (probably to garbage).

if, when you visit the link above, you don't see all this,  
it's most likely because the listserve trashed the link.

of course, this exact approach means that you cannot  
send a very long message. but it's still quite interesting.

Classics - The Trial by Franz Kafka in Markdown - Any Others?

Hello,

   As a follow I've converted a Gutenberg classic- that is, the The
Trial by Franz Kafka -  in "vanilla" plain text to plain text in
Markdown.

  See the GitHub repo [1] for the full book.

  The idea is to keep it simple. If you know any other classics in
Markdown let us know.

   Cheers.

Awesome Books (in Markdown) - Any Missing?

Hello,

   I've started (yet another) awesome collection on GitHub. What's news?

   The awesome-books page [1] collects books handwritten (or
auto-build) in Markdown. Examples include:

   - You Don't Know JS (Book Series)
   - PHP: The Right Way
   - Learn you an Agda (and Achieve Enlightenment)
   - and others

   If any goodies are missing let us know. Might be great to get some
classics (in the public domain) e.g. Shakespeare, Dickens and friends.

  Cheers.

[1] https://github.com/writekit/awesome-books

PS: To get listed the books must be free (that is, the Markdown source
must be open source).

Re: Markdown-Discuss Digest, Vol 146, Issue 2

Hi,

For conversion tools, not sure why *Pandoc* is just described in terms of *command-line*. It is a comprehensive conversion tool for many formats to many formats:


I think the problem with these kinds of "collections of links" is that many of them are only peripherally important, and one does not need zillions of links to use the tool.

For me, who uses Markdown every day, the following are what count:

- Atom (editor): https://atom.io
- Pandoc (supertool) http://pandoc.org/
- PHP-Markdown-Extra (php/wordpress) https://michelf.ca/projects/php-markdown/
- WriteBox and StackEdit (Web/Browser/Mobile apps) http://writeboxapps.com/ and https://stackedit.io/

Of course others have other preferences.

Sincerely,
Jeff McNeill

Hello,

   As posted before I've started an awesome collection about all
things Markdown [1]. One new section is converters from X to Markdown
e.g. from MS Word to Markdown, from HTML to Markdown.

   If you know any other formats and tools that can get converted or
convert to Markdown, please let us know.

  Cheers.

Awesome Markdown List - Collection of Markdown Goodies Started - Contributions Welcome

Hello,

   I've started yet another awesome collection about  - surprise,
surprise - Markdown - inspired by the awesome-<you-name-it> trend on
GitHub that collects links on a single page - in Markdown ;-) e.g.
README.md - in a git repo.

   What’s news? The awesome-markdown repo [1] collects Markdown
goodies, libraries, services, tools, guides, books, etc. Still early
and rough. Anything missing? Contributions welcome. Cheers.

caddyserver.com

another prediction confirmed:

a new webserver which serves markdown directly,
without making users do a conversion themselves.

>   https://caddyserver.com

next we'll need to hook in some good templates,
to produce beautiful sites with powerful features,
so we can open up the world wide web once again,
like it was before the tech burden drove people to
the nice simplicity of silos like facebook and twitter.
