Markdown/Multimarkdown to HTML

Stephen Davies 7 years ago • updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 7 years ago 3
Can you convert from markdown or multitask down straight to HTML from the app?
I have been looking for an app that does this, and this app also does syntax highlighting for C++ (my current preferred language!)
I want to be able to write (multi)markdown code, the send as HTML as an email attachment. Is this possible?
Yes, you can tap on the action button and choose "Copy Generated HTML" to copy the HTML generated by the Discount Markdown library.

You can also directly send it as an HTML-formatted email by choosing "Send As Message" in Textastic.
Does this work with MultiMarkdown as well?
Textastic uses the Discount Markdown library: http://www.pell.portland.or.us/~orc/Code/discount/

It supports Markdown and some extensions: I have compiled it with "--with-fenced-code" and "--enable-alpha-list".

Have a look at the Discount site to see what it supports.
