Basic Usage

Qiita::Markdown::Processor provides markdown rendering logic.

processor = Qiita::Markdown::Processor.new(hostname: "example.com")
# => {
#   codes: [
#     {
#       code: "1 + 1\n",
#       language: "ruby",
#       filename: "example.rb",
#     },
#   ],
#   mentioned_usernames: [
#     "alice",
#     "bob",
#   ],
#   output: "<h1>Example</h1>\n...",
# }


Qiita::Markdown is built on jch/html-pipeline. Add your favorite html-pipeline-compatible filters.

processor = Qiita::Markdown::Processor.new(hostname: "example.com")
processor.filters << HTML::Pipeline::ImageMaxWidthFilter


.new and #call can take optional context as a Hash with following keys:

:allowed_usernames            - A list of usernames allowed to be username. (Array<String>)
:asset_path                   - URL path to link to emoji sprite. (String)
:asset_root                   - Base URL to link to emoji sprite. (String)

:emoji_names                  - A list of allowed emoji names. (Array<String>)
:emoji_url_generator          - #call'able object that accepts emoji name as argument and returns emoji image URL. (#call)
                                The original implementation is used when the generator returned a falsey value.
:hostname                     - FQDN. Used to check whether or not each URL of `href` attributes is external site. (String)
:inline_code_color_class_name - Class name for inline code color. (String)

processor = Qiita::Markdown::Processor.new(asset_root: "http://example.com/assets", hostname: "example.com")

Rendering Summary

There's another processor Qiita::Markdown::SummaryProcessor, which is for rendering a summary of markdown document. It simplifies a document by removing complex markups and also truncates it to a specific length without breaking the document structure.

Note that this processor does not produce the :codes output in contrast to the Processor.


SummaryProcessor accepts the following context in addition to the Processor's context:

  truncate: {
    length: 100,  # Documents will be truncated if it exceeds this character count. (Integer)
    omission: '' # A string added to the end of document when it's truncated. (String, nil)
processor = Qiita::Markdown::SummaryProcessor.new(truncate: { length: 80 }, hostname: "example.com")
