Expand description

Pull parser for CommonMark. This crate provides a Parser struct which is an iterator over Events. This iterator can be used directly, or to output HTML using the HTML module.

By default, only CommonMark features are enabled. To use extensions like tables, footnotes or task lists, enable them by setting the corresponding flags in the Options struct.


use pulldown_cmark::{Parser, Options, html};

let markdown_input = "Hello world, this is a ~~complicated~~ *very simple* example.";

// Set up options and parser. Strikethroughs are not part of the CommonMark standard
// and we therefore must enable it explicitly.
let mut options = Options::empty();
let parser = Parser::new_ext(markdown_input, options);

// Write to String buffer.
let mut html_output = String::new();
html::push_html(&mut html_output, parser);

// Check that the output is what we expected.
let expected_html = "<p>Hello world, this is a <del>complicated</del> <em>very simple</em> example.</p>\n";
assert_eq!(expected_html, &html_output);
