This plugin lets ikwiki convert files with names ending in ".mdwn" to html. It uses the markdown minimal markup language.

This is the standard markup language used by ikiwiki, although some others are also available in other plugins.

There are several implementations of markdown support that can be used by this plugin. In order of preference:

Text::MultiMarkdown can be used in order to use tables, footnotes, and other new features from the markdown variant called multimarkdown. Multimarkdown is not enabled by default, but can be turned on via the multimarkdown option in the setup file. Note that multimarkdown's metadata and wikilinks features are disabled when it's used with ikiwiki.
