cmark: Haskell bindings to libcmark, CommonMark parser and renderer
cmark provides the following advantages over existing Markdown libraries for Haskell:
Robustness: cmark can handle whatever is thrown at it, without the exponential blowups in parsing time one can sometimes get with other libraries.
Accuracy: cmark passes the CommonMark spec's suite of over 500 conformance tests.
Standardization: Since there is a spec and a comprehensive suite of tests, we can have a high degree of confidence that any two CommonMark implementations will behave the same. Thus, for example, one could use this library for server-side rendering and commonmark.js for client-side previewing.
Ease of installation: cmark has minimal dependencies.
cmark does not provide Haskell versions of the whole
libcmark API, which is built around
cmark_node objects. Instead, it provides two functions:
markdownToHtmluses libcmark's parser and renderer for a maximally efficient conversion of CommonMark to HTML (as a Text). ("Smart punctuation" and a few other options can be enabled.)
parseDocumentuses libcmark's parser to produce a
Nodetree that can be processed further using Haskell. One can transform the tree using generics, convert it to another kind of structure (such as a Pandoc object that can be rendered using pandoc's renderers) or render it using a custom rendering function.
A note on security: This library does not attempt to sanitize HTML output. We recommend using xss-sanitize to filter the output.
A note on stability: There is a good chance the API will change significantly after this early release.
