md_to_bbcode

Convert Markdown text to Bbcode

Provides a Ruby API and a command-line executable to convert Markdown text to BBCode format.

Installation

As a prerequisite, you just need to have Ruby installed in your system.

md_to_bbcode installs as any Rubygem, either using gem command or Bundler.

gem install md_to_bbcode

Or using Bundler, add this in your Gemfile and issue bundle install.

gem 'md_to_bbcode'

Usage

Once the gem is installed you can require its main library in your Ruby code and use its API:

require 'md_to_bbcode'

# Convert a String directly
puts 'This is **a bold Markdown text**'.md_to_bbcode
# => This is [b]a bold Markdown text[/b]

The gem also comes with a nice executable that can convert Markdown files to BBCode.

# Display help
md_to_bbcode --help

# Convert a Markdown file into a BBCode file
md_to_bbcode --input original_markdown_file.md --output converted_to_bbcode_file.bbcode

Which Markdown/BBCode flavour is supported?

There are so many flavours of those 2 markup languages that it is impossible to cover them all, but the goal of this project is to add more and more.

The list of supported syntaxes can be seen directly from the test cases.
