I’ve been wanting to put up a RedCloth “dingus” like you find on
Textism, but always thought it would take too much time and would be
one more app taking up resources.

Then I got a reminder email from Heroku that I wasn’t doing anything
with my beta invitation. So I took them up on it. I wrote a simple
Sinatra app, did a git push heroku, and basked in its glory.

Nothing fancy, but it’s incredibly fast. Check it out:

I plan to style it and integrate it into the reference manual (try out
the examples via AJAX) at some point, but not bad for a quick hack, eh?


P.S.: Here’s the app:

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘sinatra’
require ‘redcloth’

get ‘/’ do
haml :index

post ‘/’ do[:text]).to_html
