The Idea

I wanted to have a lightweight blog system which is based on markdown.

Dependencies

History

I started writing HTML code and noticed how cumbersome it was. At work I use a lot of markdown language and remembered that I once saw a video about a markdown blog. So I duckduckwent "markdown server" or what ever - I can't remember and found two potential repositories: this github repo and this github repo. Unfortunately, I didn't get neither running so I got my own running. At first it was just a quick fix, but now MDPHP is growing more and more usable.

If you ever look for another markdown solution for your website, I advise you to search for "php markdown" (parsedown looks pretty neat).

How To Use It

git clone https://github.com/pur80a/MDBlog.git /var/www/html/blog 
cd /var/www/html/blog 
vim res/config.php
./res/mkpost.sh My First Post#follow directions

All you will have to do is change into the newly created directory and Now you can happily edit the index.md file.
