Markdown Plugin

The Markdown plugin allows you to use Markdown in your annotation comments. It will then render them in the Viewer.


This plugin requires that the Showdown Markdown library be loaded in the page before the plugin is added to the annotator. To do this simply download the showdown.js and include it on your page before the annotator.

<script src="javascript/jquery.js"></script>
<script src="javascript/showdown.js"></script>
<script src="javascript/annotator.min.js"></script>
<script src="javascript/annotator.markdown.min.js"></script>


Adding the Markdown plugin to the annotator is very simple. Simply add the annotator to the page using the .annotator() jQuery plugin and retrieve the annotator object using .data('annotator'). Then add the Markdown plugin.

var content = $('#content').annotator();
content.annotator('addPlugin', 'Markdown');
