I have a simple flat file markdown to

2023-08-25 19:20:03.679338+02 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I have a simple flat file markdown to HTML system that I use for a couple of my web sites. It has a few annoying parser bugs that I could fix, but I'd really rather contribute to some other project, or support a commercial app.

It was built to replace Mediawiki with a flat file system.

The only thing I want is for my URLs to remain stable, so I want it to be able to find my old images, and output my files and internal links in a particular way.

Any recommendations?

Fix the parser. The problem with using a third party tool is that it will inevitably change and break something with your setup. I have my own markup language just for that reason (also, I can make changes that make sense to me, but not to anyone else).

Docuwiki ??? I love it for some things.

Format with:

(You should probably use "Text" mode: URLs will be mostly recognized and linked, _underscore quoted_ text is looked up in a glossary, _underscore quoted_ (http://xyz.pdq) becomes a link, without the link in the parenthesis it becomes a <cite> tag. All <cite>ed text will point to the Flutterby knowledge base. Two enters (ie: a blank line) gets you a new paragraph, special treatment for paragraphs that are manually indented or start with "#" (as in "#include" or "#!/usr/bin/perl"), "/* " or ">" (as in a quoted message) or look like lists, or within a paragraph you can use a number of HTML tags:

p, img, br, hr, a, sub, sup, tt, i, b, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, cite, em, strong, code, samp, kbd, pre, blockquote, address, ol, dl, ul, dt, dd, li, dir, menu, table, tr, td, th

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
