Text to HTML Writers

27/11/2011

Many useful tools exist to easily write HTML text but putting off the difficulties found in this language. These tools are mostly found in Wikis and doc-comments. One great example of such a language is MediaWiki used in the well-known Wikipedia.  I’ll write more on these tools and languages since I have more knowledge and discretion with them.

The ones I have found are:

  • reStructuredText
    This format is used mostly in Python programs.
  • Markdown
    Very popular nowadays, a variation of Markdown is used heavily in GitHub. It is quire simple and elegant. Here is a short tutorial of the format.
    As it’s mentioned in its official web site, “Markdown’s syntax is intended for one purpose: to be used as a format for writing for the web.
    So, Markdown is heavily used for HTML conversions and simple text reading of a document. In contrary, creation of PDF files is not so elegant.
  • AsciiDoc
    This format is my own favorite. It produces rather elegant Web sites.
