New-Line-to-Break Extension

Summary

The New-Line-to-Break (nl2b) Extension will cause newlines to be treated as hard breaks; like StackOverflow and GitHub flavored Markdown do.

Example

>>> import markdown
>>> text = """
... Line 1
... Line 2
... """
>>> html = markdown.markdown(text, extensions=['markdown.extensions.nl2br'])
>>> print html
<p>Line 1<br />
Line 2</p>

Usage

See Extensions for general extension usage, specify markdown.extensions.nl2br as the name of the extension.

This extension does not accept any special configuration options.
