So as I've mentioned in the past, I have got this journal full of Wikidot ideas I come up with. It has well thought out designs and new mechanisms to solve problems. I never usually start on a Wikidot project without first drawing it out.
Until this weekend. I got an idea and acted upon it straight away.
So today, I am officially announcing my newest project:
The Wikidot Syntax to HTML Converter!!!
Yes, what a completely pointless project. I've lost the plot.
Here is version 614 in it's current incomplete form. Try it out! Type in some Wikidot Syntax!
It's like creating a page, with instant preview!
|Compatible Syntax||Not Yet Compatible||Not Supported|
|1||Inline Formatting||Collapsible Blocks||HTML Blocks|
|3||Paragraphs and New Lines||Definition Lists||Table of Contents|
|12||Advanced (custom) Tables|
|13||Block Formatting Elements|
|14||Custom Div Blocks|
Interestingly enough, I have discovered some interesting things about Wikidot through this project. Especially in the construction of the Wikidot parser itself. That's right, THE Wikidot parser.
But of course I have. Logically thinking, if I were to construct a tool that perfectly converts Wikidot syntax into HTML, in theory the tool should be very similar to the actual Wikidot parser itself.
I will publish my findings later, however :)
