Markdown String Interpolator for Scala 3

Scala versions: 3.x

Markdown as a String Interpolator

Proof of concept of a markdown string interpolator. E.g. you can write

import mads.Mads.text._

val mads = "Mads"

# An example

This is an example of $mads

and produce a value in a number of output formats (String, scalajs-react, etc.) By "a number of output formats" I mean text, which is currently the only supported format---but other formats could easily be added.

It's like MDX but not tied to Javascript and React.

To use, add the following dependency to your build.sbt:

libraryDependencies += "org.creativescala" %% "mads" % "0.2.0"

Supported Markdown

Mads does not currently support much of markdown. The following is implemented:

  • Headings in the sane ATX format (# Heading)
  • Paragraphs
  • Code blocks with backticks for fences. A language must be specified after the opening fence.

More will be added as the need arises. It's unlikely it will ever support Setext headings.

How it Works

It uses a so-cool-it's-frozen parser combinator library that allows suspending and resuming parsing.
