/pluggable wiki syntax

We like Multi-Markdown for text formatting, but if you prefer something else, MojoMojo's pluggable formatter chain let's you rip out the MultiMarkdown formatter, and replace it with Textile, or whatever else strikes your fancy. Since the wiki-links are handled by a separate formatter, it won't be affected at all. You can also add additional formatters to the core one, such as our RSS formatter or the Amazon formatter.

If you have an older version of MojoMojo that doesn't let you change the formatter from the Settings page, run this one-liner in the MojoMojo directory to set MultiMarkdown as the default formatter:

perl -Ilib -MMojoMojo -e'MojoMojo->pref("main\_formatter", "MojoMojo::Formatter::Markdown")'



An extension to Markdown, probably the most powerful and still light markup language. MojoMojo's default. More versatile than Textile in that it supports line breaks, code sections and paragraphs in lists, and reduces the need for escaping. MultiMarkdown extends Markdown with support for tables, footnotes, bibliography, automatic cross-references, glossaries, appendices, definition lists, math syntax, anchor and image attributes, and document metadata.


Another built-in text formatter. Textile is popular among bloggers, and has an easy to learn format. You can read more about it at the creator's website.


This formatter handles the wiki-linking between pages in MojoMojo. It supports Explicit Link? style. CamelCase is not supported by default (we learned from TWiki's mistakes).


This formatter ensures that the generated HTML is squeaky clean. That means it makes sure the generated output doesn't contain any potentially harmful elements.

Table of Contents

Generates a table of contents from the headings in the document. Syntax:

{{toc start_heading_level - end_heading_level}}

The start_heading_level and end_heading_level are optional. The following are valid examples:

{{toc}} Table of Contents calculated from all heading levels
{{toc 2-}} start with heading level 2 (useful to exclude the first Heading1)
{{toc -3}} don't got deeper than Heading3


Allows user comment on page. syntax \n=comment\n


Formats Plain Old Documentation. Processes blocks between \n=pod\n


Verbatim HTTP include. Loaded at runtime. Syntax: \n=url\n


see killtrac for example.
