Inline images can be defined with an “image” directive in a substitution definition.

dispose of medical waste.

Babelmark 2 online Markdown checker

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/07

Some markdown tools have their own page online allowing you to experiment with their rendering; [WayBack] markdown-it demo is one of them.

I was looking for a page showing the renderings of many engines in order to improve my markdown writing skills.

I found the [WayBackbabelmark2 online markdown checker, which works great.

  • It runs the markdown through various processors showing either the log with HTML produced, or a view of the rendered output.
  • It has one limitation: 1000 characters of markdown text so the markdown rendering servers will not get overloaded.

Documentation is at [WayBack] Babelmark 2 – FAQ.

In addition, this is also very useful: [WayBack] markdownlint demo Demo for [WayBack] GitHub – DavidAnson/markdownlint: A Node.js style checker and lint tool for Markdown/CommonMark files.

Note that the Visual Studio Code markdownlint support, uses the above markdownlint, which is a different one than the Ruby based [WayBack] GitHub – markdownlint/markdownlint: Markdown lint tool.

Both are far easier to use than [WayBack] GitHub – michelf/mdtest: Test suite for Markdown implementations.

Online markup conversion from markdown to mediawiki: pandoc

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/06

Since Mediawiki needs an extension to display Markdown, and many MediaWiki installations do not have that extension, I was looking for an online conversion from markdown to MediaWiki markup.

Luckily the Pandoc try has this conversion: [WayBack] Try pandoc! Markdown(pandoc) -> MediaWiki

These links helped me get there:

Two reasons I love Visual Studio Code over built-in markdown support and vscode-markdown; just watch the at master · neilsustc/vscode-markdown · GitHub

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/03

Boy, I love this so much: [WayBack] vscode-markdown/ at master · neilsustc/vscode-markdown · GitHub

Just a few of the screen videos:

  • Formula support
  • Table of Contents (ToC) support including leaving out individual headings:
  • On the fly list renumbering:
  • Image reference completion including image preview:

Finding out why Github doesn’t render your reStructuredText as expected

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/13

One of the cool Github features is that it renders reStructuredText (and other markup documents like markdown).

Often however, your .rst file on GitHub looks very differently on GitHub as your local render. Heck: sometimes Github will not even render it at all.
