[cgi-wiki-dev] Formatter API Specification and modules
Fri, 28 Jan 2005 20:19:17 +0100
There were much talk about the Formatter API, and me and Tom has done it
mostly off-list. It is something we both like.
I have just uploaded the Formatter API 0.93 to CPAN, along with three related
modules, conforming to or using the spec.
Formatter::HTML::Preformatted is a very minimal module, just adds PRE elements
to the text and finds the URLs. Then there is Formatter::HTML::HTML, which
attempts and fails to use HTML::Tidy to clean up the HTML. I don't know why,
and have marked it a "developer release" for this reason. Those who feel that
this would be really useful and/or grok HTML::Tidy may want to have a look.
If all tests pass, then it works for you, it doesn't for me... :-)
The last uploaded module is an AxKit Provider that can make use of any
