Smartdown Core

smartdown - A Javascript library for translating, rendering, and interacting with Smartdown documents.

Smartdown documents and associated resources that demonstrate various Smartdown features and serve as raw material for other Smartdown demos.

Smartdown Viewer Site

The Smartdown Viewer Site is an example application that can view Smartdown documents as well as showing their raw Smartdown text.

Example Smartdown-enabled Site

KnowBench aka InfoClay

InfoClay is an experiment in modular Markdown editing. The basic idea is that a Markdown document can be edited and Markdown can be learned a little bit at a time and that the editing environment supports the visualization of the document's structure, modular editing of structural Markdown elements (e.g., a list or an equation), and the ability to use drag-and-drop to manipulate these elements on the page. InfoClay was where Smartdown was originally prototyped before it was extracted into its own library. InfoClay is now a client of Smartdown.
