So I have a user!
My curiosity was piqued. I decided to hit Google and see if I could find any other evidence of use.
Sightings in the wild
At this stage I’ve managed to stumble across three sightings:
- First up I found Hoboken by Jeffrey Chupp; it’s a simple wiki built using Sinatra that requires wikitext
- There’s also the ActsAsMarkup project, an ActiveRecord plug-in by Brian Landau that supports wikitext as one of the possible markup formats
- Finally, I found this GitHub fork by Stephen Judkins, which currently has 5 followers (including me and the original forker, the "mother forker" if you will)
It’s that last one which had me most surprised, because you can see there’s a guy by the name of BJ Clark that actually took the time to understand the parser (about 2,500 lines of C) and produce this commit.
