Markdown Parser 0.0.6
Parses Markdown text into Fandoc objects (Internal)

Markdown Parser is a support library that aids Alien-Factory in the development of other libraries, frameworks and applications. Though you are welcome to use it, you may find features are missing and the documentation incomplete.

Parses Markdown text into Fandoc objects.

Supported Markdown syntax:

  • Headings (with anchor links)
  • Paragraphs
  • Block quotes
  • Lists (ordered and unordered)
  • Links and images
  • Bold and italics
  • Code blocks and code spans (normal and Github style)

Markdown Parser uses the extensible Parsing Expression Grammer as provider by Pegger.

Note that this markdown implementation is known to be incomplete. For example, it does not support reference links or backslash escaping * and _ characters. But it should be usable to most casual users.
