Redmine reStructuredText Formatter¶
This is a redmine plugin for supporting reStructuredText as a wiki format using either the RbST reStructuredText gem, which can convert all RST but is slow, or PandocRuby, which only supports a subset of RST but is fast.
RbST/docutils version (master branch)¶
This is potentially quite slow. RbST processes reStructuredText via Python's docutils, and docutils is slow. As far as I can tell, Redmine always formats text using a helper on each request, which means this plugin will likely add a few tenths of a second to each request, possibly more. On my machine, normal views take 450-550ms to render with the default textile option and 650-750 with this plugin. Heavily marked-up pages like the RST cheat sheet bumps it up to 1.2s. I wouldn't recommend this for public-facing pages, but it's probably OK for private Redmine instances.
PandocRuby version (pandoc-ruby branch)¶
Pandoc is much faster than docutils and should be roughly as fast as the native textile, but it only supports a subset of RST, so some features like tables are not available. This version is available on the `pandoc-ruby` branch.
