DN gets Markdown support

over 7 years ago from , Software Engineer @ HODINKEE; LayerVault Alum

Allan and I couldn't sleep, so we decided to add Markdown support to both post content and comments on DN. If you aren't familiar with Markdown, I recommend checking out either Gruber's original guide or the GitHub guide.

It's something we've wanted to do for awhile, and we hope that it will help improve the quality and legibility of discussions around the site. If we (or the mods) see it abused in any way, it will be a fast ticket to getting your account banned, or at the very least, your comment deleted.
