Enables Redcarpet extensions for YARD.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'yard-redcarpet-ext'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install yard-redcarpet-ext


Add --plugin redcarpet-ext option to your .yardopts or call yard with this option.

Create new file named .yard_redcarpet_ext with all needed Redcarpet extensions like tables separated by comma or newline.

Another way to specify extensions is setting of YARD_REDCARPET_EXTS environment variable. Extensions should be separated by comma.

You must have gem 'yard-redcarpet-ext' string in your Gemfile or development dependency in gemspec if it exists.

Allowed Redcarpet extensions listed at: https://github.com/vmg/redcarpet#and-its-like-really-simple-to-use

By default yard-redcarpet-ext enable these ones: no_intraemphasis, gh_blockcode, fenced_code, autolink and tables.

Simply add extension to be removed to the list prefixed by minus sign, like -tables.
