In last week’s EE Podcast, I wondered aloud whether someone had created a Markdown add-on for ExpressionEngine. It turns out someone had and, well, it was a long time ago (it was none other than my esteemed colleague at Happy Cog, Mark Huot).
Regardless of my inability to remember every add-on created (wrong Ryan), Stephen Lewis of Experience Internet Dot Co Dot You Kay emailed to let me know that he recently released SmartDown, which he describes as “Smarter Markdown Text Formatting for ExpressionEngine.” I’ll take him at his word.
SmartDown is more than a Markdown plugin. It is “a single-plugin replacement for the Markypants, Markdown, and SmartyPants plugins.” Three birds, one stone.
SmartDown is a free add-on and currently available only for EE 1.6.8.
