Font Awesome support for Markdown
A Markdown extension that looks for things like :fa-coffee: and replaces them with the Font Awesome icon markup.
Add 'fontawesome_markdown' to your Markdown call and watch the magic unfold:
>>> from markdown import Markdown >>> markdown = Markdown(extensions=['fontawesome_markdown'] >>> markdown.convert('i ♥ :fa-coffee:') <p>i ♥ <i class="fa fa-coffee"></i></p>
Don’t forget to make the Font Awesome assets available to your DOM, and you’re done!
