RedCloth versus BlueCloth efficiency


#1

Has anyone profiled the performance of RedCloth versus BlueCloth?

I’m starting to realise that RedCloth is a more mature ruby project,
although Markdown the syntax maybe more widespread than Textilize.

Apart from the syntax, does anyone feel they have a preference, in terms
of performance or number of outstanding bugs?

Many thanks in advance.

I haven’t used RedCloth. My experience with BlueCloth has been that
there are certain bugs that go away and resurface between releases,
and it’s also quite slow. Caching is really important to keep it under
control. I use it because I like Markdown.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for your input. I just profiled the two in a rather rough and
ready fashion, and it seems like RedCloth runs aroun 20% faster. In
addition it seems like the more mature product at the moment.
