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:
- Discount, via the Text::Markdown::Discount perl module.
- The Text::Markdown perl module.
- The original version of markdown.
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
in the setup file. Note that multimarkdown's metadata and wikilinks
features are disabled when it's used with ikiwiki.
