YAML metadata extension for Python-Markdown

Project description

YAML metadata extension for Python-Markdown

Build Status Coverage Status Code style: black Python versions PyPi

This extension adds YAML meta data handling to markdown with all YAML features.

As in the original, metadata is parsed but not used in processing.

Metadata parsed as is by PyYaml and without additional transformations, so this plugin is not compatible with original Meta-Data extension.

Basic Usage

import markdown


text = """---
title: What is Lorem Ipsum?
categories:
  - Lorem Ipsum
  - Stupid content
...

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text.
"""

md = markdown.Markdown(extensions = ['full_yaml_metadata'])
md.convert(text) == '<p>Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text.</p>'
md.Meta == {'title': 'What is Lorem Ipsum?', 'categories': ['Lorem Ipsum', 'Stupid content']}
