Hello,

I've been thinking about this for a while.

Markdown format has gained a lot of traction in the last few years.

I think U++ and TheIDE can benefit from this (for example, TheIDE or any U++ app using QTF can display markdown formatted text it its intended form, using a MD -> QTF conversion).

To this end, I propose encapsulating the MD4C ("Markdown for C") library.

It does not take much space, comes as a single header and source file, is multiplaform (Win, POSIX), easy to encapsulate, and very fast.

It has MIT license.

Here is the MD4C's github link: https://github.com/mity/md4c

What do you think?

(I can get it ready for U++ 2020.2 release)

Best regards,
Oblivion

Ok,

I have started implementing the parser. Hopefully the first official version of it will be available around September if not earlier.

Best regards,
Oblivion

That would be great, as we could have the same help files visible in GitHub and U++ web portals, and in U++ apps. Smile

Yeah, well, but we would need QTF->MD for that I guess instead Smile Which is doable too, but harder.

At least, the MD->QTF is good for the new helps.
