I've created a markdown gem in Ruby that lets you use your markdown
library of choice. Preconfigured markdown libraries include: kramdown,
redcarpet, bluecloth, maruku, rpeg-markdown, rdiscount, pandoc-ruby.

Usage in your Ruby code:

require 'markdown'

Markdown.new( 'Hello World' ).to_html

The gem also includes a little command line tool. Try markdown -h
for details.

For configuration and more see the project site at
