Flexmark

Writing a flexmark Extension in Clojure

Writing wiki pages using Markdown is a great way to do things because it is simple, well-known, and capable. One of the annoyances of using Markdown is that it has no default syntax to create wikilinks, a type of hyperlink that links one page in a wiki to another. I’ve been working on a home-grown, personal wiki, CWiki, for almost a year now off and on. It’s written in the Clojure programming language, which is a pleasure to use.
