Markdown rendering for R

Overview

Markdown is a plain-text formatting syntax that can be converted to XHTML or other formats. This package provides R bindings to the Sundown markdown rendering library.

The R function markdownToHTML renders a markdown file to HTML. Options controlling HTML output and supported markdown extensions can be optionally specified.

The package also exports the underlying Sundown C extension API which enables creating and calling custom renderers using the renderMarkdown function.
