A transformation and parsing framework for converting markdown content to HTML, Slate (for rich-text editing) and other structured document object models (DOMs).
Structure of the Code Repository
Top level repository (markdown-transform), with sub packages. Each sub-package is published as an independent npm module using
- markdown-cli : command line utilities
- markdown-transform : High-level API to transform markdown into different formats
- markdown-common : converts between markdown strings and the CommonMark DOM
- markdown-cicero : converts between the CommonMark DOM and the CiceroMark DOM
- markdown-template : converts between JSON data + markdown strings and TemplateMark
- markdown-slate : converts between the CiceroMark DOM and the Slate DOM
- markdown-html : converts between the CiceroMark DOM and HTML
- markdown-pdf : converts between a PDF file and the CiceroMark DOM
- markdown-docx : converts a DOCX file to the CiceroMark DOM
- markdown-it-cicero : markdown-it plugin for contracts and CiceroMark
- markdown-it-template : markdown-it plugin for templates and TemplateMark
- dingus : published tool to edit markdown as HTML or a DOM
The CommonMark DOM is a model for the elements of CommonMark (the specification for markdown text), expressed as a Concerto schema, and serialized as a JSON graph.
