READ WRITE EMIT boosts the usefulness of BLUEPHRASE notation, allowing a single source file to be used to generate HTML, Markdown, Wikitext, plain text, and many more.

Use cases

RWEMIT allows a document to be marked up with BLUEPHRASE typographic notation to match the author's intentions for emphasis, structure and decorations.

RWEMIT also allows the same BLUEPHRASE notation to be used to generate structured data files.


RWEMIT works just like RWNOTE, having a syntax highlighting view, and an output view with these file types:

  • Plain text
  • Daring Fireball Markdown
  • Github-flavored Markdown
  • Wikitext
  • HAML
  • HTML
  • XHTML for EPUBs
  • XML
  • SVG
  • MathML
  • JSON
  • YAML
  • TOML
  • Windows INI
  • Apple Plist
