Description : Mmark: a markdown processor in Go geared for the IETF
Write RFCs using markdown. Mmark (written in Go) provides an advanced
markdown dialect that processes a single file to produce internet-drafts
in XML format. Internet-drafts written in mmark can produce XML2RFC
v2 and XML2RFC v3 output.
Mmark is a fork of blackfriday which is a Markdown processor implemented
in Go. It supports a number of extensions, inspired by Leanpub, kramdown
and Asciidoc, that allows for large documents to be written. It is
specifically designed to write Internet Drafts (I-Ds) and RFCs for the IETF.
With mmark you can create a single file that serves as input into the
It can currently output HTML5, XML2RFC v2 and XML2RFC v3 XML.
Other output engines could be added.
It adds the following syntax elements to blackfriday:
* Definition lists.
* More enumerated lists.
* Table and codeblock captions.
* Table footer.
* Quote attribution.
* Including other files.
* TOML titleblock.
* Inline Attribute Lists.
* Main-, middle- and backmatter divisions.
* Example lists.
* HTML Comment parsing.
* BCP14 (RFC2119) keyword detection.
* Include raw XML references.
* Super- and subscript.
* Callouts in code blocks.
Mmark is forked from blackfriday which started out as a translation from
C of upskirt.
A simular effort is kramdown-rfc2629 from Carsten Bormann.
