dartdoc markdown library

This is a standalone version of the dartdoc markdown library. It parses markdown and converts it to HTML.


Add this to your pubspec.yaml (or create it):

  markdown: any

Then run the Pub Package Manager (comes with the Dart SDK):

pub install


import 'package:markdown/markdown.dart' show markdownToHtml;

main() {
  print(markdownToHtml('Hello *Markdown*'));

Version 0.4 adds support for GitHub style triple backtick code blocks, with built in Dart syntax coloring. Custom classifiers can be added using a callback:

import 'package:markdown/markdown.dart' show markdownToHtml;

main() {
  print(markdownToHtml("Hello *Markdown*"), (syntax, source) {
    if (syntax == 'mysyntax') return classifySyntax(source);
    return source;

String classifySyntax(String source) {
	return '<span class="mysyntax">$source</span>';



Parses text in a markdown-like format and renders to HTML.
