    I believe a lot of the actual replacements (or at least mappings to replacements) are happening in - you can see on lines 106-172 all of the regex patterns that are used for various matches. Line 442 you can see the Processor that was created to handle Asterisks, working with and .

    Interesting, I also use markdown, but hadn't heard of Django-Markdownx before your today. What I do is create two fields: body_md and body_html, and on save use Python Markdown to turn my markdown in html.
  • Spell checking Markdown documents using a Github action
    4 projects | | 26 Apr 2022
    Now we have to add a configuration file for the spelling checker. It uses PySpelling under the hood. When checking Markdown files, it first converts a Markdown text file's buffer using Python Markdown and returns a single SourceText object containing the text as HTML. Then it captures the HTML content, comments, and even attributes and performs the check. It has a lot of configuration options, but here we are going to see only an example with some basics. For further info you can read the docs of the rojopolis/spellcheck-github-actions Github action.

  • How I Refactored my Code
    2 projects | | 15 Oct 2021
    To resolve the above issue, I thought the best approach was to avoid reinventing the wheel and save myself hours of debugging: use a third-party library. After implementing a Python implementation of John Gruber’s Markdown, 36 lines of code were cut down to a single function call. I've not benchmarked my SSG after the change, but in terms of code readability, it's certainly worth the overhead caused by the library.

    Wait wait I'm not that good in Rust. In fact I wanna use this opportunity to learn Rust. As an ML engineer and automation specialist I rarely get to work with anything but Python. I'm working on this in Golang (I'm actually contemplating giving it up because EVERYONE told me not to use Regex to parse and I did!) and then I'm tryna find something interesting to do in Rust -- I've made some stuff such as a web scraper and a simple endpoint. This project will come much later, like, 6 months from now.
