Markdown - text to html conversion

Posted on October 05, 2010 tools


Last week while I sat in a Udi Dahans distributed systems design course, taking notes on my laptop. I was told about this tool called markdown. It allows you to include some basic format specifiers in your text file so that it can later be converted to html using something like rdiscount.
