One of my annoying itch is documentation.
I like a lot kramdown as syntax but sadly it is ruby-only and overall the Markdown implementation for python usually have a good number of shortcomings, including the quite annoying part of not having a full AST for the extensions, making quite a pain to proper translations (e.g. moin-2 markdown can’t use the extension supported by the original since they get mangled badly during the process of node matching)…
I know that somebody else already tried to bridge docutils and markdown, sadly
parsley is a tad slow for the purpose. I gutted away the original markdown parser and wired in commonmark-py the result is a decently fast implementation that maps most of the core syntax to the docutils AST and thus makes possible to write in markdown and get it converted using the docutils output formats.
ReStructuredText is much richer than CommonMark core, at least I should complete my work to support attributes so the manpage output would work mostly as intended.
As usual help welcome!
