Showdown [Unreleased]

Maintainer(s): Lucas
Supported by: Community

Showdown/MarkDown plugin for SilverStripe to allow you to create your pages using Markdown with live preview.

This module lets you edit page content using the Markdown text-processing system.   A live preview is shown using the Showdown javascript library.

Installing the module will by default provide a ShowdownPage type.

However, you may wish to simply override all HtmlTextFields with ShowdownTextField, in which case you may un-comment the line in _config.php.
This will also override $Content in templates to display correctly.

To display fields other than Content correctly on the front-end, you will need to adjust the templates manually, as shown in the README.
