Markdown WikiProcessor Macro Implementation


The MarkdownMacro package implements John Gruber's Markdown lightweight plain text-to-HTML formatting syntax as a WikiProcessor macro. The original code is courtesy of Alex Mizrahi aka killer_storm. I simply added a little robustness to the error checking, documented the package, created and this README, and registered it with Trac Hacks.


First you need to install Python Markdown. Follow the instructions on the Web site.

Then download the attached zipfile, unpack it to a temporary location, visit the 0.11 directory and run:

python bdist_egg
cp dist/*.egg /trac/env/Project/plugins


Enable the macro in:


Markdown.* = enabled

You may have to restart your Web server.
