Change Log

0.5.8 - 2020-12-13

✨ NEW: Add linkify, thanks to @tsutsu3.

This extension uses linkify-it-py to identify URL links within text:

  • github.com -> <a href="http://github.com">github.com</a>

Important: To use this extension you must install linkify-it-py; pip install markdown-it-py[linkify]

It can then be activated by:

from markdown_it import MarkdownIt
md = MarkdownIt().enable("linkify")
md.options["linkify"] = True

0.5.7 - 2020-12-13

✨ NEW: Add smartquotes, thanks to @tsutsu3.

This extension will convert basic quote marks to their opening and closing variants:

  • ‘single quotes’ -> ‘single quotes’
  • “double quotes” -> “double quotes”

It can be activated by:

from markdown_it import MarkdownIt
md = MarkdownIt().enable("replacements").enable("smartquotes")

✨ NEW: Add markdown-it-task-lists plugin, thanks to @wna-se.

This is a port of the JS markdown-it-task-lists, for building task/todo lists out of markdown lists with items starting with [ ] or [x]. For example:

- [ ] An item that needs doing
- [x] An item that is complete

This plugin can be activated by:

from markdown_it import MarkdownIt
from markdown_it.extensions.tasklists import tasklists_plugin
md = MarkdownIt().use(tasklists_plugin)
