Hello!

Does anyone know of any already implemented support for the Github wiki format? It's basically Markdown/Textile, but with internal links in Mediawiki format.

It may be relatively easy to define an own language extension, but if that wheel has already been invented...

A second, related, issue: is there a github-wiki-to-eclipse-help converter?

best regards,
Vlad

There is currently no support for the GitHub Flavoured Markdown syntax
[1] in Mylyn Docs. It should be fairly straightforward to implement
though. We already have MarkDown and CommonMark in place. I tend to use
the CommonMark editor with CSS for making the preview look more or less
like it's rendered on GitHub. AFAIK there is no
github-wiki-to-eclipse-help converter.


Best regards,
Torkild

Thank you, I knew that the base package doesn't support this, but hoped that some third-party already did. In the meanwhile, I found it easier to convert the sourced to regular Markdown.

Thanks again.
