Markdown parser done right.

For a good introduction to markdown-it see the Live demo. This is a Python port of the well used markdown-it, and some of its associated plugins. The driving design philosophy of the port has been to change as little of the fundamental code structure (file names, function name, etc) as possible, just sprinkling in a little Python syntactical sugar ✨. It is very simple to write complimentary extensions for both language implementations!
