  I've put together a simple online editor [1] that lets you try the
kramdown library converting markdown to HTML or LaTeX. The online app
also includes a HTTP JSON API service (e.g. /markdown) for conversion.

    All is packed up in a kramdown-service gem [2] for easy (re)use
and as an extra bonus includes a binary, that is, kramup, that starts
up the online editor and service on your local machine (e.g. use $

    Supported conversion options/modes include:

    - HTML  - kramdown in GitHub-Flavored Markdown (GFM) Mode
    - HTML  - kramdown in GitHub-Flavored Markdown (GFM) Mode w/
Syntax Highlighter (rouge)
    - HTML  - kramdown in "Classic" Mode
    - LaTeX - kramdown in GitHub-Flavored Markdown (GFM) Mode

    All code public domain. Questions? Comments? Welcome. Cheers.

PS: What's kramdown?

kramdown is a fast markdown converter in Ruby (no C-extension required);
supports conversion to HTML or LaTeX; kramdown is the "standard"
markdown converter used by GitHub Pages, Jekyll and others.
