markdown-it-classy

This is a plugin for the markdown-it markdown parser.

Need to style some text written with markdown but are lacking that extra oomph? Plug in markdown-it-classy.

Install

$ npm install --save markdown-it-classy

or, if using bower:

$ bower install --save markdown-it-classy

or, just grab dist/markdown-it-classy.js and add it to your project.

Plug

For NodeJS and other environments that expose require:

var classy = require("markdown-it-classy"),
  MarkdownIt = require("markdown-it"),
  md = new MarkdownIt();

md.use(classy);

If you're using markdown-it-classy in the browser without require support, you can find it on the global object:

var classy = window.markdownItClassy;

md.use(classy);

Use

Anything in curly brackets ({}) gets interpreted as a class string for that element.

This is paragraph 1.

This is paragraph 2 and I wish there was a way to make it blue.
{blue}

converts to:

<p>This is paragraph 1.</p>
 
<p class="blue">This is paragraph 2 and I wish there was a way to make it blue.</p>

Go crazy (or not)

# All kinds of headings work! {classy}

## Atx... {classy} ##

... and Setext {classy}
---

_em {classy}_ and __strong {classy}__ are supported as well.
{classy}

- so
- are
- ul tags
{classy}

> blockquotes?
> {classy}
>
> why not!
{classy}

converts to:

<h1 class="classy">All kinds of headings work!</h1>
 
<h2 class="classy">Atx...</h2>
 
<h2 class="classy">... and Setext</h2>
 
<p class="classy"><em class="classy">em</em> and <strong class="classy">strong</strong> are supported as well.
 
<ul class="classy">
    <li>so</li>
    <li>are</li>
    <li>ul tags</li>
</ul>
 
<blockquote class="classy">
    <p class="classy">blockquotes?</p>
    <p>why not!</p>
</blockquote>

Very classy indeed!

Nested elements

Because of the way the CommonMark spec keeps track of nested elements (eg. a paragraph inside a blockquote), there is a slight gotcha when it comes to specifying classes for one or the other. So while adding classes to paragraphs only is straightforward:

Something or other. {someclass}
                                   =>     <p class="someclass">Something or other.</p>
Something or other.
{someclass}

with blockquotes, the situation is a bit more involved:

> Something or other. {someclass}  =>     <blockquote><p class="someclass">Something or other.</p></blockquote>

HOWEVER!

> Something or other.
{someclass}
                                   =>     <blockquote class="someclass"><p>Something or other.</p></blockquote>
> Something or other.
> {someclass}

So basically, if the class statement is after a newline, it gets applied to the outer element, and if it's inline, it's applied to the inner element.

The same applies for lists:

- something {item-class-one}
- other {item-class-two}           =>     <ul class="list-class"><li class="item-class-one">something</li><li class="item-class-two">other</li><ul>
{list-class}

Disclaimer

This purposefully doesn't conform to any spec or discussion related to CommonMark. It's only ever useful if you want to add classes to some Markdown and nothing else. A possible use case could be if you wanted to give users a very limited styling capability beyond em and strong.
