#33 Make the meeting description support a markdown syntax
Closed: Fixed None Opened 8 years ago by mamasun.

At the moment the meeting description can only be plain text, we should be able to add links and emphasis as we want. Using a markdown syntax will help.

WAS:

Topic: Add field for the link to the event page

At the moment when creating the event there is no field for the link to the event's wiki page. Although the Description filed can be used it's not convenient for the links.


I'm not sure having a link field is the way to go. I would rather have the possibility to create link and format the description of the meeting in a nice way (think mediawiki/trac input with markdown syntax).

What do you think?

Yes, it's good idea. I didn't think about it.
But how can we put emphasis on the fact that the link to the wiki page is extremely desirable information (if not required)? For Events calendar it is important.

I think this will have to be enforced by the community, I don't think I'll want to enforce this at the software level.

Just for reference, I'm thinking of using python-markdown for this, a couple of links (for me mainly):
the syntax: http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax
how I shall use it: http://pythonhosted.org/Markdown/reference.html#the-basics
I should be able to integrate this in the template engine itself.

This is now fixed in git
