|Alternative Markup Formats
||[Jul. 17th, 2006|11:06 am]
I'm trying to get a feel for whether there is interest/support in the lj_dev world for LiveJournal to support alternative markup formats like Textile and Markdown. I know that I'd much prefer to write posts in Textile rather than HTML, but I'm just one guy.|
What I'm looking for here is whether or not there is great resistance to adding support for these things. I'm more than willing to work on a patch to do so if there is interest, since I know that the LiveJournal devs probably have a list 15 miles long as it is.
What does everyone think? Good idea? Bad idea, and if so, why?
edit: sorry about the formatting, looks like LJ dropped my auto-format setting?
