Markdown parser done right.
This is a Python port of markdown-it, and some of its associated plugins. For more details see: https://markdown-it-py.readthedocs.io.
For details on markdown-it itself, see:
conda install -c conda-forge markdown-it-py
pip install markdown-it-py
from markdown_it import MarkdownIt from markdown_it.extensions.front_matter import front_matter_plugin from markdown_it.extensions.footnote import footnote_plugin md = ( MarkdownIt() .use(front_matter_plugin) .use(footnote_plugin) .disable('image') .enable('table') ) text = (""" --- a: 1 --- a | b - | - 1 | 2 A footnote [^1] [^1]: some details """) tokens = md.parse(text) html_text = md.render(text)
Also you can use it from the command-line:
$ markdown-it markdown-it-py [version 0.1.0] (interactive) Type Ctrl-D to complete input, or Ctrl-C to exit. >>> > **hallo** there! ... <blockquote> <p><strong>hallo</strong> there!</p> </blockquote>
Big thanks to the authors of markdown-it:
Also John MacFarlane for his work on the CommonMark spec and reference implementations.
