Over a week ago, my peer implemented initial markdown support to bolster Siteit’s existing SSG capabilities. This week, I am to add new markdown features to the repo.
I started by filing an issue regarding Siteit’s lack of ability to process
code blocks. Then I began by implementing its source code and frequently committing it to a new git branch. After thoroughly testing my work, I pushed the changes to GitHub.
Users can now supply a markdown file containing lines of source code enclosed within a pair of backticks.
When Siteit is processing markdown files and encounters lines containing an instance of a backtick, followed by some text and one or more backticks, it will accurately render the text within a pair of
<code>…</code> blocks. Furthermore, instances of
--- in markdown files are rendered as
<hr> in generated HTML.
Overall it was fun to practice several features of Git while adding new features to Siteit.
