Creole is an important formatting tag system ( Files ending in .creole are more and more frequent today. Its possibilities are similar to those a MMarkdown, but it seems more intuitive and, hence, easy to remember, while really powerful.

Do you have any plans to support it?

Thanks in advance, especially for your really excellent Marked.

    Probably not directly, but you can use it right now. Just download creoleparser, unzip it and run python install from its base folder. Then you can put this into a file called

     import sys
     from creoleparser import text2html

    Run chmod a+x and then put the path to the processor in the Custom Processor field in Marked. I tested it, it works great.

    Thanks Brett for the solution and your really fast answer. I observe two things: it is much slower, and it displays empty white renderings with some .md's If you unmark the "Custom Markdown Processor" it renders everything perfectly as usual.

    It's Python based as opposed to the native C library that renders MultiMarkdown in Marked. There is no creole renderer that will work that way yet.

    And you can't have both markdown and creole render at the same time. You either have a custom processor and use creole, or you use the built-in processor and use Markdown. I'm working on a way to set the processor per-file, but it's not ready yet.
