One of my New Year's resolutions is to release more code, even if it doesn't meet my quality expectations yet...

I'm using this hack for some time now...

It's a nodelet hack which automatically transforms my wiki-ish syntax into monk-code on submit.

This is done transparently because after a reload the monk-code in the textarea is translated back to the original wiki syntax.

Please note that you can still safely use and blend PM-markup as long as you use lowercase characters. The automatically transformed code is always uppercase.

The biggest benefit is that paragraphs <P> are automatically included between two newlines...

...but I added some more goodies over the years. (see examples further down.)

To activate this for yourself you just need to include the following code into your free nodelet.

<script src='?abspart=1;displaytype=displaycode;node_id=1153804;part=3'></script>

(UPDATE: Additionally the "Free Nodelet" must be activated at Nodelet Settings)

I hope the mechanism of the code is obvious enough to be adapted to your needs.

codelink corrected, including another codearea changed the index to 3


) there is a long To-Do list left, but the idea of open source is to attract collaborators and/or forks ... right? ;-)
