Description Nathaniel McCallum 2017-01-03 18:54:46 UTC

Look at the installation instructions of the above repo. The markdown is correct. However, code blocks have newlines stripped. Also, it resets the numbering on the ordered lists.

Comment 1 Nathaniel McCallum 2017-01-03 18:56:02 UTC
It would also be nice to get syntax highlighting support. Maybe we need to use a better markdown library? Perhaps something that supports all of the GitHub extensions.

I had a look at it and did some improvement on it (http://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/npmccallum/nbde/) but could not quite fix everything (i.e. list numbering resets seemed to be at least very hard to fix). We are using https://pythonhosted.org/Markdown/. We could perhaps consider some other lib. I agree that could be beneficial.

Comment 3 clime 2017-09-15 08:56:02 UTC
We have switched to using python-CommonMark and the resetting of numbering should be now fixed. Syntax highlighting is also on now but it doesn't work extremely well on shell snippets :(. Perhaps we could find some improvements there if new bug is filled for that.
