tiddlywebplugins.markdown 1.2.1

Markdown rendering for TiddlyWeb

Latest Version: 1.3.0

# Intro

A [TiddlyWeb]( plugin to render markdown
syntax wikitext to HTML using the
[Python Markdown]( library.

The source repository is available
[on GitHub](

# Features

If `markdown.wiki_link_base` is set in
[instance]( config, then
TiddlyWeb oriented features are turned on (see below),
otherwise the text is treated as straight Markdown.

Additional Markdown extensions can be activated via the `markdown.extensions`
configuration settings, which is a tuple of two items: A list of extension names
and a dictionary with configuration settings.

By default some extensions are included:

* `fenced_code`:
* `def_list`:
* `foootnotes`:
* `headerid`:

The TiddlyWeb features add the following:

* `wikilinks`: CamelCase
* `freelinks`: [[some page]]
* `labeled freelinks`: [[label|some page]]
* `transclusion`: see below

Wikilinks and freelinks will be prefixed by `wiki_link_base`.
Set it to '' (emptry string) to activate the features without any prefix.

Transclusion uses the following syntax:

{{tiddler title}}

That will include tiddler with the given title from the
current context (recipe or bag) of the transcluding tiddler.

Links and transclusion can be augmented with `@target` syntax:

* `@target`
* `CamelCase@target`
* `[[some page]]@target`
* `[[label|some page]]@target`
* `{{tiddler title}}@target`

`target` is resolved via three different configuration settings:

* `markdown.interlinker` names a function which returns a link
to whatever might be considered a target of some kind. It's
arguments are a WSGI environ and a string representing the
target. It returns a URI for the target, without the title
of the tiddler.

* `markdown.target_resolver` names a function which determinesh
the tiddler object that is to be transcluded. It's arguments
are a WSGI environ, a string representing the context from
which a tiddler is being transcluded and a tiddler object.
That tiddler object is modified in place to add the bag in
which it can be found.

* `markdown.transclude_url` names a function which returns a
link to a tiddler in a target context. It's arguments are a
WSGI environ and a tiddler. It returns a URI for the tiddler
that has been transcluded. This is useful for augmenting the
output to include a link to the transcluded tiddler.

To use this renderer on Tiddlers which have a type of
`text/x-markdown` adjust
to include:

'wikitext.type_render_map' :{
'text/x-markdown': 'tiddlywebplugins.markdown'

If you want all tiddlers with no type to be rendered as markdown,
then set

'wikitext.default_renderer': 'tiddlywebplugins.markdown'
