Generating HTML from Markdown in Anki fields

I write in Markdown because it’s much easier to keep the flow of writing going without taking my hands off the keyboard. I also like to write content in Anki cards in Markdown. Over the years there have been various ways in of supporting this through add-ons: The venerable Power Format Pack was great but no longer supports Anki 2.1, so it became useless. Auto Markdown worked for a while but as of Anki version 2.

Markdown anchors

TIL how to use anchors in Markdown documents. I needed to use this in a long blog post in my Octopress blog and was stymied. As usual, I found the answer on Stack Overflow. Beam me [up](#enterprise), Scotty <a id="enterprise"></a> It’s a great way to move around in longer content. 2014-03-03: I no longer publish using Octopress; but this should work in most cases where Markdown is used. Bitbucket is a notable exception.
