For an alternative, here a shameless plug:

Wikisyntax for the Monastery

I'm using it for 7 years now (?) and published it in 2016.

are regular users.

Several thousand posts were written in the meantime, only minor issues.

I wrote more than 50% of my posts from mobiles since I'm using this, HTML tags are a PITA otherwise.

"Wikisyntax" is probably misleading because it primarily supports

  • autolinking of URLs
  • de-localizing internal links (no lockouts) becomes Re: Markdown is now supported for comments, experimentally
  • short doc-links like ?my? for my
  • automatic <p> tags between paragraphs
  • short inline code-tags via 'single quotes'
  • email-style quoting with > text...
  • automated linking of Module::Names -> Module::Names
Plus: It doesn't interfere with the internal syntax:

The new syntax is translated to uppercase tags like <P> before posting and those uppercase tags are translated back again to the new syntax when editing , i.e. the <P> disappears at paragraphs end. (click on the xml display-link to see the stored format with uppercase tags)

It's based on a multi-phase regex logic and can be easily ported to Perl.

Hope this was of interest! :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
