Multiple processors depending on file ending

I'm constantly switching the processor back and forth depending on if I do Markdown, reST or Textile.

It would be great if you could have one processor configured per file ending (or per regular expression), or if the filename was available as either an argument or an environment variable to the processor.

    I agree, and this is on the roadmap. I haven't decided exactly how I want
    to implement it, but I do think it would be useful in many situations.

    A first step could be to make the filename or extension available as an
    environment variable that you could use in your scripts.

    That would be easy enough to implement, and seems like a really good idea. I'll definitely look into it.

    Any progress on this?

    I too would love to have this option. I'm starting to write a lot more in asciidoc so I've got a custom processor for Marked to handle that, but I'm also still maintaining markdown docs. Having a configurable processor by file type/extension would be AWESOME!

    This is a large undertaking. I'm making progress, but it's been
    secondary to getting the App Store version ready. I'm definitely working
    on it, though.
