After a big news section, we talk with Alfred Reinold Baudisch about his project PardallMarkdown. It’s a reactive Elixir server that reads markdown files, compiles them to HTML, stores them in an ETS table, and serves them up. It’s a different take on serving markdown files for a blog. It can also be used as a wiki and supports deeply nested hierarchies. An interesting feature is it can be used as a library inside your own Phoenix application to provide blog posts or other “static” content.
