AMU is a human readable markup language I made for my own uses and to learn. It is the first lexer and parser that I have written by hand.
The purpose of this project is to create a markup language for my own use. I have previously added features to other markup languages, but this caused issues in multiple cases. I decided to create a markup language myself instead.
This repo is a library for parsing AMU. It can be imported and used like any other go library.
cmd/amu, there is a binary that will read from Stdin with no arguments, or from a file given as the first argument. It will output the generated HTML.
cmd/amulive, there is a Gtk app that has a text box on the left and a webview on the right. It displays the generated HTML on the right as you type into the text box.
The syntax for most of AMU's features can be seen in
test.amu in this repo.
Timing this program using
test.amu, I consistently get 4ms run time. This is much faster than my previous modified markup languages. It is likely unnoticeable in most cases, but interesting nonetheless.
