It's even worse than it appears.

  • Going to do some more cleanup work this morning on Markdown support in Old School. #
  • In the meantime, the thread continues. If you're planning on using Markdown to write blog posts in Drummer, you might want to tune in, because things are being locked down today. #
  • There are only two rules that govern how Old School generates source for the Markdown processor:#
    • One newline per outline node. #
    • Indentation belongs to the author, generates nothing.#
  • I sent a private note to John Gruber a few days ago, letting him know this discussion is going on. As far as I know we are setting prior art for outliners used to generate Markdown for publishing. If there is prior art, I would love to know about it now, asap. #
  • This is different from the Obsidian model also used by LogSeq -- which uses Markdown as a file format for outlines. #
  • Update: Here's a list of this morning's changes to Markdown support for publishing. #

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
