Documentation

Mdx Truly Sane Lists

Build Status

An extension for Python-Markdown that makes lists truly sane. Features custom indents for nested lists and fix for messy linebreaks and paragraphs between lists.

Features

  • nested_indent option: Custom indent for nested lists. Defaults to 2. Doesn't mess with code indents, which is still 4.

  • truly_sane option: Makes linebreaks and paragraphs in lists behave as usually expected by user. No longer adds weird p, no extra linebreaks, no longer fuses lists together when they shouldn't be fused (see screenshots and examples below). Defaults to True.

  • Inherits sane lists behavior, which doesn't allow the mixing of ordered and unordered lists.

Installation

Pypi:
pip3 install mdx_truly_sane_lists
Directly from git:
pip3 install git+git://github.com/radude/mdx_truly_sane_lists

Usage

Basic:

from markdown import markdown

# Default config is truly_sane: True, nested_indent: 2
markdown(text='some text', extensions=['mdx_truly_sane_lists']) 

With explicit config:

from markdown import markdown

markdown(text='some text',
         extensions=[
             'mdx_truly_sane_lists',
         ],
         extension_configs={
             'mdx_truly_sane_lists': {
                 'nested_indent': 2,
                 'truly_sane': True,
             }},
         )

You can preview the new behaviour live at rentry.co (uses nested_indent: 2, truly_sane: True)
