John Gruber has a Text-to-HTML system, called Markdown. Markdown resembles wiki syntax in most ways and seems a bit more well-designed than Textile. I decided I wanted Markdown for my blog. However, Markdown is written in Perl, while I’m using PyBlosxom, so I needed to convert it to python. It took a few hours, but it seems to be working fairly well now. In addition, I converted all my old posts to the new syntax. A fair bit of work, but I think it’s totally worth it.
I’m too tired to actually publish the pymarkdown source right now, but I’ll do that once I have woken up tomorrow.
