I'd like to be able to use an existing SharePoint site/page to be able to display simple documents, announcements, etc.
But instead of using the Wiki or blog engine native to SharePoint and it's WYSIWYG editor, I'd rather store the format in Markdown-formatted text files and then have the site convert the Markdown to HTML and then render it using a CSS that I define.
I'd like to host the text files and CSS outside of the SharePoint environment, like on a file share.
For those wondering why I'm looking for this type of a solution.
- I want to work in plain text so that the content is easily portable out of SharePoint
- I want to use Markdown because I do want the end product to have rich text formatting
- I want to point to a custom CSS so I can control how things look
- I want to store the files outside of SharePoint so I can manage them in a version control system like Mercurial and not have to manually upload content to the site.
