Dillinger

Dillinger is a cloud-enabled, mobile-ready, offline-storage, AngularJS powered HTML5 Markdown editor.

  • Type some Markdown on the left
  • See HTML in the right

Markdown is a lightweight markup language based on the formatting conventions that people naturally use in email. As John Gruber writes on the Markdown site

The overriding design goal for Markdown’s
formatting syntax is to make it as readable
as possible. The idea is that a
Markdown-formatted documenthould be
publishable as-is, as plain text, without
looking like it’s been marked up with tags
or formatting instructions.

This text you see here is actually written in Markdown! To get a feel for Markdown’s syntax, type some text into the left window and watch the results in the right.

Version

By default, the Docker will expose port 80, so change this within the Dockerfile if necessary. When readynger
docker build -t /dillinger:latest .

This will create the dillinger image and pull in the necessary dependencies. Once done, run the Docker and map the port to whatever you wi on your host. In this example, we simply map port 80 of the hooost to port 80 of the Docker (or whatever port was exposed in the Dockerfile):

```sh
docker run -d -p 80:80 --restart="always" <youruser>/dillinger:latest

Verify the deployment by navigating to your server address in your preferred browser.
