WikiEngine: html <-> wiki syntax conversion as new engine?


#1

I’m working on a news publishing system. I would like to use wiki
syntax in this system. I will believe the code for conversion between
html and wiki syntax can be separated in an new engine?

If you who are developing WikiEngine don’t have the time, I can
probably contribute (but in case; please tell me where the relevant
code are).

There are already existing wiki syntax libraries in ruby, RedCloth
(Textile syntax) and BlueCloth (markdown syntax). It’s easy to
incorporate either of these into a rails app, be it an engine, plugin,
whatever.
