Yesterday Markdown support was introduced in a new version of Gitblog. Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format.
Simply give your post a file extension of
.markdown and you’re done.
For example, have a look at this post from yesterday and compare it to it’s Markdown source: content/posts/2009/10-10k-comet-connections.md.
The Mardown Extra flavour is used, adding structures like tables and header id tags. There are also a few Gitblog specific things, most notably the support for code-blocks (syntax highlight). Language can be explicitly specified using a shebang:
#!language actual code...
To get this feature, simply perform a
git pull in your gitblog directory:
cd path/to/my/blog/gitblog git pull
