By now you probably know that MarkAPL converts Markdown to HTML5.
All you need is the class
MarkAPL and the namespace script
Let's assume you have some Markdown:
MyMarkdown←'# MarkAPL' 'All about **_MarkAPL_**'
There are two possible scenarios:
All you need to do is to call the
(html ns)←MarkAPL.Markdown2HTML MyMarkdown 50↑∊html <a id="markapl" class="autoheaderlink"><h1>MarkAPLstrong></p>
Note that not only the HTML but also a namespace
ns is returned which, among other stuff, has a variable
report that might carry warnings and error reports. Ideally
report is empty.
This way of calling
Markdown2HTML relies entirely on defaults. If you are not happy with those you must specify parameters in one of two ways:
MarkAPL.CreateParms), make amendments and pass the namespace via the left argument to
Markdown2HTML. The next topic explains how to do that.
In order to make MarkAPL create a complete HTML page you can either specify
outputFilename or set the
createFullHtmlPage flag to 1:
parms←MarkAPL.CreateParms parms.createFullHtmlPage←1 (html ns)←parms MarkAPL.Markdown2HTML MyMarkdown ⍪4↑html <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8">
outputFilename has the additional benefit of writing the HTML to that file.
parms is a namespace that holds variables with default values. You can list them by calling
In order to make MarkAPL create a complete HTML page you can embed either
createFullHtmlPage into the markdown:
(html ns)←MarkAPL.Markdown2HTML (⊂'[parm]:createFullHtmlPage=1'),MyMarkdown ⍪4↑html <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8">
MarkAPL.Help 0 in order to view the cheat sheet.
MarkAPL.Reference 0 in order to view the comprehensive documentation.
Note that this requires the files MarkAPL_CheatSheet.html and MarkAPL.html respectively to be found either in the current directory or in a folder
files\ in the current directory.
If those assumptions don't work you must tell
Reference) where to find the file in question:
parms←MarkAPL.CreateHelpParms parms.homeFolder←'C:\Where_MarkAPL_HTML_lives' parms MarkAPL.Help 0
