[Noisebridge-discuss] Markdown in the wiki

Hei, Noisebridge

I've had this itch, you see. An itch that needed scratching.

noisebridge.net uses mediawiki. Its huge. Its complicated. The syntax is 
bespoke. We use maybe 1% of all of its functionality. My itch is that we (and 
other hackerspaces) can do better.

I have scratched it by writing a thing called SpaceWiki:

http://ratchet.noisebridge.systems/wiki/

There are no logins needed, reverting pages is a manual process, the whole 
thing is stored in a sqlite database, and it kinda almost has a RESTful API.

Please do try and break it so I can fix things you find. Most of the syntax is 
handled here:

https://github.com/tdfischer/spacewiki/blob/master/templates/page.html#L21
https://github.com/tdfischer/spacewiki/blob/master/filters.py

I'm going to hack on a mediawiki importer thing this weekend to see how hard 
it'd be to import the entire noisebridge wiki verbatim into this and fix things 
up to not be awful.
