identifies itself as being the Universal Markup Editor and from as far as I can tell, this is probably true! It was very easy to integrate the jQuery editor into my new Blog Admin views. I will try to illustrate how I was able to do this below.
In addition to the jQuery MarkItUp files, you will also need to download the MarkUp to HTML parser/enhancer of your choice. I used the MarkdownSharp
framework which is what the makes of StackOverflow.com have recently converted to an Open Source project.
Download the MarkItUp Files and MarkDown Sharp
You’ll need to take a look at the MarkItUp Website
and download a couple of different files.
- markItUp! pack 1.1.6
- Basic MarkDown Set
Include MarkItUp Folder In Your Project
Now that you have the files downloaded, you need to deploy them to your MVC site. I have deployed the MarkItUp folder to my Scripts directory. The MarkItUp folder contains 3 different folders (sets, skins, and templates) and you’ll find a couple of .js files in the root of the folder.
Once the MarkItUp folder is in your project, open up the MarkDown file that you downloaded above. You will need to deploy this folder into the Sets folder described above in your project.
