Update 12th Jan 2017: This project has been replaced with my improved CommonMark-iOS project
I've just put the finishing touches on a module I've been working on for iOS
projects. It's a module for converting Markdown to HTML and HTML to Markdown.
I call it Shakespeare. It's fast (a few milliseconds per document) and
requires no plugins or third party items.
How does it work?
It's essentially a sneaky hack. Rather than implement a Xojo-based Markdown
in iOSHTMLViewers to do the conversion. It uses remarkable.js and
How do I use it in my projects?
Shakespeare is designed to be easy to use. Simply drop it in a Xojo iOS project,
initialise it and call one of its two methods:
Shakespeare.Initialise() dim md, html as Text ' Convert to HTML md = "This is **bold** text" html = Shakespeare.MarkdownToHTML(md) ' This is <strong>bold</strong> text ' Convert to Markdown html = <h1>My heading</h1> md = Shakespeare.HTMLToMarkdown(html) ' # My heading
Suggestions and feedback welcome.
