Markdown is a text based markup language, which provides a quick way of editing posts as readable plain text, but have them simply rendered into formatted HTML.

I routinely use Markdown to create posts on this blog, and also use it to create readme files for github plugins. I thought it’d be handy if long form posts on Known could also have this functionality, so I wrote a very quick plugin that adds it.

Hope this will be useful!

  1. This is a plugin, so you can use it straight away. I don’t think that there are any plans to support markdown natively, I think they prefer to do things via the WYSIWYG editor.
