A lightweight markdown to html converter.

Project description

mark3 provides a lightweight, markdown to html parser for python 2.7 and 3.


Using mark3 is very simple:

from mark3.markdown import markdown
html = markdown(raw_text)


mark3 may differ slightly from the official markdown implementation.

If you find a difference between mark3’s output and the official markdown’s not mentioned here, please open a ticket.


A <p> will be placed in an <li> if, and only if it’s needed:

* foo
* bar

Will produce the same output as:

* foo

* bar

Inline HTML

This markdown:

< foo <b>bar</b>>


<p>&lt; foo <b>bar</b>&gt;</p>

Instead of the official markdown implementation output:

<p>&lt; foo <b>bar</b>></p>


Tabs are expanded to 4 spaces before parsing. As such, output will never contain tabs.

Insignificant Whitespace

Outputted html doesn’t have as much insignificant whitespace as the official markdown implementation.
