This is a tool to allow you to edit and view Markdown documents. It uses a customised version of md4c at https://github.com/mity/md4c by Martin Mit available to do the actual conversion of Markdown to HTML. ## USAGE: The window consists of two pages; an Editor page and a Settings page. ### Editor: The Editor page consists of a tool bar and a text editor gadget which is where the Markdown source code will be shown. The text editor is a subclass of the [text editor custom class](https://github.com/amiga-mui/texteditor) so all of its key shortcuts are available too. #### Toolbar * **Load**: Load a Markdown file. Alternatively you can either drag and drop a markdown file onto the window. * **Save**: Save the contents of the text editor to a file. * **Convert**: Convert to HTML and view in a browser. This will save a new file with ".html" appended to the name of the markdown file and open it in a browser. * **Undo**: Undo the latest changes. * **Redo**: Redo the latest reverted changes. * **Bold**: Make the selected text bold. * **Italic**: Make the selected text italic. * **Strikethrough**: Strike through the selected text. * **Code**: Make the selected text code. * **Horizontal Rule**: Insert a Horizontal Rule. * **Fenced Code**: Make a fenced code block. * **Hyperlink**: Insert a hyperlink. This will open a new window where you can enter the link text and address. * **Image**: Insert an image. This will open a new window where you can enter the image path, its alternative text and an optional title. * **Table**: Insert a table. This will open a new window where you can enter the number of rows and columns that you require. Also there is an *Alignments* string gadget where you can specify the alignment for each column. By default, each column is left-aligned, however you can alter that here. The string here will be read where the first character defines the alignment for the first column, the second character for the second column, *etc.* * *l* will make the column left-aligned, * *r* will make the column right-aligned * *c* will make the column centre-aligned. If the *Alignments* is empty or has fewer characters than the number of specified columns, the remaining columns will default to being left-aligned. For example *crlc* would specify that the first four columns of the table would be centre-, right-, left- and centre-aligned respectively. ### Settings: On this page you can configure some of the options for converting the md4c Markdown to HTML. For more information on these, view the [md4c documentation](https://github.com/mity/md4c) ## FUTURE: * Getting the buttons to become selected for given bits of text, e.g. the bold button being highlighted when the cursor is in a piece of bold text, etc. * Syntax highlighting would be nice too. * Adding more elements to the md4c Markdown to HTML conversion code such as definition lists, footnotes, *etc.* This would then get added to md4c via pull requests. * The ability to save and load customised conversion settings. * Get the *Convert* function to re-use an existing browser window rather than launch a new one each time. Any other ideas are welcome. :-) ## CHANGELOG ### 0.8 - (10/01/2021) * Moved to using TheBar to give a graphical toolbar along with many more functions. * Added Undo, Redo, Strikethrough, Code, Fenced Code Blocks, Horizontal Rule, Table, Image and Link functions ### 0.5 - (07/01/2021): * Changed from using HTMLview to using Launch-Handler which comes with OS4. * Added the settings page to allow configuration of the Markdown to HTML conversion settings. * Added a (very!) :-)) rudimentary set of buttons on the toolbar to allow the setting of bold, italic and code sections. * Added a test Markdown file. * Bug fixes. ### 0.1 - (05/01/2021): * Initial release ## LICENSE: The code is available under the MIT license.
