World Classics - The World’s Greatest (Literature) Books in Markdown

Hello,

  If anyone follows along I've added a bookshelf [1] to the World
Classics series that collects the world's greatest (literature) books
in (surprise!) Markdown, that is, plain old text with some simple
formatting conventions.

  Using the Octobook Classics Book Theme [2] turns the pages into a
single-page (online) book. The first two books in the series include:

- The Trial by Franz Kafka
- Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

  If you know any other world classics in Markdown, let us know. As
always comments, questions, etc. welcome. Happy reading. Enjoy the
summer. Cheers.

Awesome kramdown - A collection of awesome kramdown goodies for the markdown converter in Ruby

Hello,

  To celebrate local hero Thomas Leitner and the great markdown
converter made with ♥ in Vienna I've put together a bookmark
collection in the awesome tradition called (surprise!)
awesome-kramdown [1].

  Did you know? You can't use kramdown not only on GitHub Pages (w/
Jekyll) but also for building rfc2629 documents, man pages or Facebook
Instant Articles.

 Anything missing? Let us know. Cheers.

Write Your Talks / Presentations in Markdown - New Slide Show (S9) Online Service w/ S6 Blank and Deck.js Templates

Hello,

   I've put together a litte online editor / service for the Slide
Show (S9) machinery that lets you convert plain text with markdown
formatting into slide shows using your template pack of choice (e.g.
S6 Blank, deck.js, etc.)

  The service runs on Heroku e.g. tryslideshow [1][2]. About the
formatting: Heading 1s get converted to "title" or "section" slides.
Heading 2s get converted to "regular" slides and use horizontal lines
(e.g. `---`)
for "hard" slide breaks. Example:

    title:     Habits
    author:    John Doe
    date:      March 22, 2016

    # In the morning

    ## Getting up

    - Turn off alarm
    - Get out of bed

    ## Breakfast

    - Eat eggs
    - Drink coffee

    # In the evening

    ## Dinner

    - Eat spaghetti
    - Drink wine
    - Browse slide show

    ----

    ![](i/slideshow.png)

    ## Going to sleep

    - Get in bed
    - Count sheep

 Find more info about Slide Show (S9) at the project site [3].
More info about the slide show template packs; see S6 Blank [4] and
deck.js [5] etc.

  Cheers.

Added Markdown support to wrap(1)

Hello -

I’ve been hacking on wrap(1) and wrapc(1) that are text and source-code-comment reformatters,
respectively, for a long time.  I started them to scratch my particular itch, namely the ability to easily
rewrap text (and, in particular, comments in source code) while in an editor.  See:

	https://github.com/paul-j-lucas/wrap

The relevance for this mailing list is that I’ve recently completed adding Markdown support since
source-code-comment-formatting tools like Doxygen now support Markdown.  Unlike other Markdown
formatters that convert Markdown into some other format (typically HTML), wrap does source-to-source
reformatting, i.e., it rewraps Markdown text into nicer-looking Markdown text.

For example, if I had a Markdown comment like:

  //
  // While blank lines don't change state directly, we do have to keep track of
  // when we've seen one because:
  //
  //  + They help determine whether the line after the blank line is a
  //    continuation of the current state based on indentation.
  //  + They disambiguate "---" between a Setext 2nd-level header and a
  //    horizontal rule.
  //

and then I edit the comment by inserting text into the second bullet:

  //
  // While blank lines don't change state directly, we do have to keep track of
  // when we've seen one because:
  //
  //  + They help determine whether the line after the blank line is a
  //    continuation of the current state based on indentation.
  //  + They disambiguate "---" between a Setext 2nd-level header (that has to have a text line before it) and a
  //    horizontal rule (that doesn't).
  //

then the text of the bullet is too long.  To make it look nice, ordinarily I’ve have to insert a newline, add
another //, and join the second line of the bullet.  Instead, while in vim (after having bound the key
sequence `c for wrap comment), I can just type said sequence while the cursor is in that comment and it will
instantly reformat the comment to:

  //
  // While blank lines don't change state directly, we do have to keep track of
  // when we've seen one because:
  //
  //  + They help determine whether the line after the blank line is a
  //    continuation of the current state based on indentation.
  //  + They disambiguate "---" between a Setext 2nd-level header (that
  //    has to have a text line before it) and a horizontal rule (that
  //    doesn't).
  //

- Paul

Try kramdown Online Editor & HTTP JSON API Service - Convert Markdown to HTML & LaTeX

Hello,

  I've put together a simple online editor [1] that lets you try the
kramdown library converting markdown to HTML or LaTeX. The online app
also includes a HTTP JSON API service (e.g. /markdown) for conversion.

    All is packed up in a kramdown-service gem [2] for easy (re)use
and as an extra bonus includes a binary, that is, kramup, that starts
up the online editor and service on your local machine (e.g. use $
kramup).

    Supported conversion options/modes include:

    - HTML  - kramdown in GitHub-Flavored Markdown (GFM) Mode
    - HTML  - kramdown in GitHub-Flavored Markdown (GFM) Mode w/
Syntax Highlighter (rouge)
    - HTML  - kramdown in "Classic" Mode
    - LaTeX - kramdown in GitHub-Flavored Markdown (GFM) Mode

    All code public domain. Questions? Comments? Welcome. Cheers.

PS: What's kramdown?

kramdown is a fast markdown converter in Ruby (no C-extension required);
supports conversion to HTML or LaTeX; kramdown is the "standard"
markdown converter used by GitHub Pages, Jekyll and others.

Slide Show (S9) v3.0 - Write Talks / Presentations in Text w / Markdown - Many Themes (S5, S6, deck.js, impress.js, etc.)

Hello,

 Starting with Slide Show (S9) [1] v3.0 all slide show/presentation
templates are now Jekyll-compatible and use Liquid.

  Why? The idea is that your slide show template pack is "just" a
Jekyll site and, thus, you can use your Liquid template skills for
creating or changing slide show / presentation templates and if you
use GitHub you can use the free built-in GitHub pages service for live
previews, testing, and more.

  For some first example see:

  - S6 Blank templates [2] and the live demo [3]
  - deck.js templates [4] and the live demo [5]

Any favorite slide show/presentation package? Questions? Comments?
Welcome. Cheers.

PS: What's Slide Show (S9)? It's a ruby gem with a command line tool
(e.g. slideshow) that lets you write talks / presentations in plain
text with markdown formatting e.g.

# Web Services REST-Style: Universal Identifiers, Formats & Protocols

Agenda

- What's REST?
- Universal Identifiers, Formats & Protocols
- The Holy REST Trinity - Noun, Verbs, Types
- REST Design Principles
- Architecture Astronaut REST Speak
