How it works

In order to get a instance of the parser, you use:


To parse Markdown text:

MarkDownParser.getinstance.Parse(source as String, compact as Boolean=False) as String

To set the CSS Style of the resulting HTML:

MarkDownParser.getinstance.setCSSStyle(CSSStyles as String)

MarkDownParser for Xojo assigns the blockcode CSS class to the code tag when it applies to a block of code, so you can define different styles to the inline and block code in your CSS styles.

For example, while defining the CSS Style:

code.blockcode {display:block; white-space:pre-wrap;}

Markdown Syntax
