git clone git://github.com/davidfstr/rdiscount.git
Discount was developed by David Loren Parsons. The Ruby extension is maintained by David Foster.
New releases of RDiscount are published to RubyGems:
$ [sudo] gem install rdiscount
The RDiscount sources are available via Git:
$ git clone git://github.com/davidfstr/rdiscount.git $ cd rdiscount $ rake --tasks
See the file BUILDING for hacking instructions.
RDiscount implements the basic protocol popularized by RedCloth and adopted by BlueCloth:
require 'rdiscount' markdown = RDiscount.new("Hello World!") puts markdown.to_html
Additional processing options can be turned on when creating the RDiscount object:
markdown = RDiscount.new("Hello World!", :smart, :filter_html)
Inject RDiscount into your BlueCloth-using code by replacing your bluecloth require statements with the following:
begin require 'rdiscount' BlueCloth = RDiscount rescue LoadError require 'bluecloth' end
Discount is free software; it is released under a BSD-style license
that allows you to do as you wish with it as long as you don't attempt
to claim it as your own work. RDiscount adopts Discount's license
verbatim. See the file
