    I have found that when you start working on just a single project, it will naturally lead to other opportunities (e.g. upstream libraries, similar projects, etc). When I started working on MarkBind, a static site generator, I was also making occasional contributions to some of the plugins for markdown-it, the Markdown parser that MarkBind uses. I was fixing bugs in MarkBind by discovering the root causes in the upstream libraries and pushing fixes there to hopefully benefit other projects as well. I even made a pull request to fix the documentation that I was reading on an MDN page for : The Table Body element, something that broke the server-side rendering of MarkBind.

    Next, I setup a markdown parser, markdown-it. I then created another Mustache lambda for converting markdown to HTML and injecting it in the template output. I also ran the Markdown string through the Mustache parser, so I could use my “media” lambda inside markdown. This is where things got gross in the code.

    At its core it is an extension to the popular open-source Markdown library markdown-it. Plugins for markdown parsers and preprocesseors are an avenue for more innovation of this nature.
  • Rendering Markdown with Enhance
    3 projects | | 18 Nov 2022
    Enhance does not natively support rendering markdown into HTML, which is out of scope for the project. Instead, we rely on markdown-it, an excellent JavaScript markdown parser that is endlessly configurable with plugins. As we use markdown in many different projects, we’ve created a node module called, Arcdown, which packages together our preferred conventions for parsing markdown files.
  • DPS909 Blog - Lab 6: Full MD Support
    3 projects | | 25 Oct 2022
    I found a NPM library called markdown-it that parses all MD syntax into HTML. I thought this was a good module because it also supports plugins to extend it's functionality, so if I need additional features to be supported I can easily implement them.

    Thankfully someone had already made a tool for this called markdown-it, otherwise you'd have to make your own parser which would be a pain.

    Over the past few weeks, I mostly wrote on how to template a Node.js application with EJS using Express. Then, I wrote an article showing how to create a Markdown blog in Node.js using EJS, Express, gray-matter and markdown-it. Today, I'll combine those tutorials to turn the Markdown blog, from the last tutorial, into a simple SSG.
