bridge to use pandoc as a converter for markdown to various output formats.
See http://johnmacfarlane.net/pandoc/README.html for more details about pandoc. This is just a very basic interface, which doesn't support flexible options passing, etc.
It basically only supports markdown to (html or latex) fragment conversion.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install rails_pandoc
This gem needs
pandoc which can be installed using
cabal install pandoc
sanitize is a self-written Haskell-module, which can be found in
GEM_ROOT/haskell/. This depends on the cabal package
cabal install xss-sanitize
Afterwards the module can be compiled and the binary moved to your prefered location:
cd GEM_ROOT/haskell/ ghc --make sanitize.hs mv sanitize ~/.cabal/bin rm sanitize.hi sanitize.o
markdown = "* a\n* list"
To convert some markdown into html use: pandoc_to_html(markdown) or the short alias: pan2h
To convert it to latex use: pandoc_to_latex(markdown) or the short alias: pan2l
Check if pandoc and xss-sanitize are installed and if not tell the user that those dependencies need to be installed/ask the user to install them for him!
