Recently I posted an article whose examples are done with the Ruby Interactive Shell,
It was annoyingly tedious to copy and paste snippets from the
irb window into the post editor.
So I decided to automate. (Shocker!).
I'm building a program that will:
- Read markdown that contains snippets intended for
- Run each such snippet through
irb, capturing the session.
- Replace the original snippet with that output.
- Mark the changed passage as a Ruby code block.
Question is, what to call it?
- Started out thinking
irb2md, but though the output is markdown, the input is not just simple
- Now it's
irb_filter, but that doesn't tell an accurate story either.
- Leaning toward
irb_in_md, but not happy about it.
