Project Title: Alfresco Developer Series Tutorials Upgrade & Markdown Transformer
Aim of Project: For the Alfresco Developer Series Tutorials Upgrade, the goal was to get them upgraded to the latest version of the SDK. These tutorials are a very popular way for developers to get introduced to the platform, so it is important that they be up-to-date.
The goal of the Markdown Transformer was to add Markdown support to Alfresco so that you can do Markdown-to-HTML transformations.
The Markdown Transformer has been tested on both 5.2 and 6.2. It installs as a repository-tier AMP. The source code is available at https://github.com/jpotts/alfresco-markdown-transformer. If there is interest I will push the artifacts to Maven Central to make them easier to include in projects as a dependency.
