6 Markdown

Index: Markdown; Gruber, John; longtext; body;

Markdown is a simple syntax for formatting plain text files so that they can be easily read and written by humans, but also can easily be converted into HTML for use on the Web. If you'd like, you can use the Markdown syntax for formatting the body of each note.

If you're new to Markdown, and would like to read about some of its advantages, feel free to consult my blog post titled Why I Use Markdown (And Why You Should Too).

Within Notenik the body of each Note can be formatted using Markdown, but so can any other field declared to be of the type longtext.

Conversion to HTML will be done when displaying a Note, but can also be invoked when sharing a Note, or when generating HTML through Notenik's templating engine.
