Package name: rust-pulldown-cmark-0.1 Version: 0.1.2 Upstream Author: Raph Levien <r...@google.com> URL: https://github.com/google/pulldown-cmark License: MIT Description: Pull parser for CommonMark, written in Rust. Pulldown-cmark is a pull parser library for CommonMark, written in Rust. It comes with a simple command-line tool, useful for rendering to HTML, and is also designed to be easy to use from as a library. It is designed to be: * Fast; a bare minimum of allocation and copying * Safe; written in pure Rust with no unsafe blocks * Versatile; in particular source-maps are supported * Correct; the goal is 100% compliance with the CommonMark spec -- I suggest to use the source package name rust-pulldown-cmark-0.1 because the main usage is as a library, e.g. in the mdbook tool or the cobalt static site generator. I intend to help maintaining rust-based packages in Debian, and CommonMark seems to be a first low-hanging fruit, because it only depends on only two other rust libraries (bitflags and getopts) which is not common in the rust environment. It provides value as a stand-alone command-line tool for generating HTML from CommonMark files. Regards, Wolfgang.
