js syntax highlighting for markdown (not for codeblocks in markdown)

honest question: why specifically is it
that you would like syntax highlighting?

i can imagine benefits, but am uncertain
exactly which one(s) you're looking for.

the reason i ask is that i believe that it
might be possible to get what you want
via easier means. but i'm just not sure
what it is -- precisely -- that you want...

js syntax highlighting for markdown (not for codeblocks in markdown)

Hi,

I am currently searching for a js library that will highlight markdown
code. The trouble is that search engines only show me solutions for
integrating markdown parsers with highlighting tools in order to
highlight code blocks in the generated HTML. But that is not what I
want. I want to write an in-browser markdown editor that has syntax
highlighting for the markdown code itself.

TL;DR: Does anyone know such a library?

I have tried [highlight.js][1]. It has markdown support but
unfortunately that is not really good. For example it can not find
nested rules like this:

    >   This is **bad**.

And it does only look at single lines. So in the following example, all
but the first line are interpreted as a code blocks.

    -   My main point here is probably that blabla blablabla
        blablabla bla bla blabla bla blablabla bla blabla
        bla blablabla bla bla blabla bla blablabla bla.

        Thanks for your attention.

It would be great if that library had optional features like fenced code
blocks and intra-word emphasis. It would also be cool if it could spot
errors (e.g. unbalanced emphasis like `**asd*`).

Re: Markdown-Discuss Digest, Vol 144, Issue 3

Only https://stackedit.io/editor supports footnotes, so these others are non-starters. Footnoting is vital for things like ebooks. Footnotes are also a pending enhancement to Atom: https://github.com/atom/markdown-preview/issues/153

but then yet another one pops up, and a new group of people say "this is such a good idea!"

contrary to its claim, fiddle.md isn't "collaborative", and isn't even particularly well-done, to be honest. but the parents seem to be fairly excited about it, so i think they are going to continue working on it. i'd still say that dillinger.io is the best of the bunch, although stackedit.io is also great. but i'd welcome any comparative reviews by actual hardcore users. -bowerbird

Is it possible to change font type in Markdown?

If so, what's the tag?  Apologies if you've already discussed this.

wrapping it around

i thought when i made z.m.l. 
that we were at the very end. 

now, though, the new york times 
has wrapped it back around with 
the debut of "archieml", or "aml".

i worry that this means we
are destined to go through
the entire alphabet again?

p.s. i appreciate how the times
has agreed with my shift from
an emphasis on "readability"
to one on "writeability" instead.

re: serving markdown directly : any suggestions?

converting light-markup to .html ain't rocket-science.  really.

you can use any language to do it.  specifically including perl.

and besides, i think it's kinda cute that some perl people would
"look down on" php, ruby, and python.  good for the gander, eh?

but if i had to place a bet, it would be on client-side javascript...

serving markdown directly : any suggestions?

hi,

have been tinkering with markdown for a few hours now, so am still a 
noob.

would like to use it for a documentation project which will be served 
over the web.

need to know if there's any way to transform markdown content to (x)html 
on the fly at the web server level?

use case:
a web server with the above capabilities would have the document root 
folder holding a bunch of markdown files and a 'css' file.
on visiting that web server's address over 'http', the index.md file 
would get transformed into (x)html, pick-up the 'css' and show a 
beautiful page to the visitor.
all this, while i would be busy writing plain old markdown.

i am sorry if this has been asked out here before, but i couldn't find 
any such queries, perhaps my googling skills are bad.  :)

thanks,

~mayuresh
