From ScrewTurn Wiki to Markdown

imageI'm in the process of moving the Orchard documentation site from ScrewTurn Wiki to a Mercurial + Markdown system, where revisions are managed through source control tools instead of a fully online wiki. We see quite a few advantages in doing that, but that's a story for another post.

Today, I just want to post on that quick and dirty tool that I've built to translate the ScrewTurn Wiki markup into Markdown. It's not a masterpiece in any way, it's not exhaustive, but I thought it may be useful to others, so here it is…

Nice! We built a crude/simple tool for managing the NuGet docs using Markdown. github.com/.../NuGetDocs

Though we could simply just use Github's Pages support too. :)

Yes, Phil, that's the code I'm using as well for Orchard.

It doesn't appear you've made that repro public yet.   Just an "access denied" here.

I use NestaCMS and Markdown in a Git repository, pushing to a free Heroku instance. It's amazingly simple and quick. You really can't beat Markdown for expressing content or Sinatra for views.

I'm finishing a Wordpress to NestaCMS conversion script, I'll publish it once I've used it to move nathanaeljones.com to Nesta. http://imageresizing.net has been running nesta since the beginning.

What CMS are you moving to?
