fast, pure-Ruby Markdown-superset converter

GFM Parser


This parser was built-in until kramdown 2.0 and since then is available through the kramdown-parser-gfm gem.

It can parse “Github Flavored Markdown”. This is a format of Markdown that is used on for most places where textual input is required, such as issues and comments. Some of the extensions, notably the “backtick fenced code blocks” are also used on other sites, for example StackOverflow.
