Addon Release: Textile for Coranto

Postby Gansos » Tue Oct 24, 2006 7:37 am

Textile for Coranto provides Textile processing on any single- or multi-line text field. It supports output in both HTML and XHTML format.

In short, Textile allows you to use very simple notation to acheive complicated formatting. For example, typing, "h1. Main Title" will result in the output, "<h1>Main Title</h1>". Furthermore, Textile automatically encloses paragraphs in <p></p> tags, removes unnecessary linebreaks (<br> or <br />), and a whole lot more to give you clean, readable and valid markup as output. You can explore Textile in more detail here: http://www.textism.com/tools/textile/.

Textile is a great feature found in Rails and various popular content management systems. It takes the burden off of end-users to create great looking markup, while generating standards-compliant code.

The addon does not actually change the news in newsdat.txt. It processes news on the fly when it is built.

The addon can be downloaded here: Download Textile for Coranto

Let me know what you think!

Great work - do you mind if I add it to the addon section of this site?

(I won't save the file locally on the server - only make the download link point to the download location you specified)

By all means. I'd be honored to have it appear in the addon section.

Version 1.02

Postby Gansos » Tue Oct 24, 2006 11:51 pm

I just uploaded v1.02. v1.0 had a small typo preventing it from correctly reading the HTML/XHTML preference. v1.01 and v1.0 used an outdated version of the Text::Textile module. v1.02 uses the most recent module.

The latest Text::Textile module adds support for footnotes, linked images and a whole lot of other neat stuff. It also fixes several bugs. There have been no changes to the addon itself, only the accompanying perl module.

If you've already installed the addon, you should re-upload both the addon and the Text directory to keep the versions in sync. You do not have to re-enable the addon.

The download link is unchanged.

It looks great. Just one thing: the current version is 1.02, not 1.01. It's not that big of a deal though.

Thanks

Touché!

I have updated the readme with the correct version (1.02).
