Why is markdown not common in wiki implementations?
Markdown is a simple markup language designed by John Gruber and Aaron Swartz. One goal of Markdown is that the original form can be used as an easily readable text file without further conversion. The markup elements have therefore already been included in the usual markup types in plain text and e-mails. Markup languages with similar goals of legibility - such as reStructuredText or Textile - also had an influence on the syntax.
The Markdown conversion software converts text into valid and W3C-compliant XHTML. The reference implementation in Perl is under a BSD-like license. In addition, a number of other implementations are now available in various programming languages. Markdown is used as the markup language in various content management systems.
Authors can use XHTML block elements for more complex markups if necessary. These elements are transferred to the target form by the conversion software without any changes. This makes it possible to format certain areas in normal XHTML.
- RubyFrontier knows Markdown
- And for TextMate there is a bundle (included) that converts Markdown to HTML and also supports multimarkdown.
- MacDown is a Markdown editor for the Mac with live preview
- Haroopad - another Markdown editor with live preview (cross-platform)
- Obsidian (free like free beer for private use) is not only a comfortable Markdown editor, but also an electronic note box.
- Typora still a cross-platform Markdown editor with only one editor and Preview window (unfortunately commercial)
- Zettlr, a free Markdown editor for scientific work (without preview window, but shows images and formulas in the editor)
