Textile (markup Language)

Textile (markup Language)

Textile is a lightweight markup language originally developed by Dean Allen and billed as a "humane web text generator". Textile converts its marked-up text input to valid, well-formed XHTML and also inserts character entity references for apostrophes, opening and closing single and double quotation marks, ellipses and em dashes.

Textile was originally implemented in PHP, but has been translated into other programming languages including Perl, Python, Ruby, ASP, Java and C#.

Textile is distributed under a BSD-style license and is included with, or available as a plugin for, several content-management systems.

  • Version 2.0 beta was released in 2004 as part of the Textpattern content management system.
  • Version 2.0 was released in 2006.
  • Version 2.2 was subsequently released in 2010.
  • Version 2.4 was upgraded in 2012 and released with Textpattern v4.5.0 on August 27, 2012.

Famous quotes containing the word textile:

    The textile and needlework arts of the world, primarily because they have been the work of women have been especially written out of art history. It is a male idea that to be “high” and “fine” both women and art should be beautiful, but not useful or functional.
    Patricia Mainardi (b. 1942)
