Support for Markdown in comments (twig/PHP/less)


I see that there are a lot of packages for Markdown, but I am interested in using Markdown inside my other code.

Specifically, I’d like to be able to go into a PHP file, create a comment block, and add Markdown headers and lists.

Then, if there was a sidebar where I could see the outline of my markdown headers, I could use these to navigate through PHP, Less or twig files. If there was a way so highlight the Markdown, where the headers were larger and double asterisks were bolded, this would greatly help me organize my code.


There are PHP markdown libraries around which might fit your needs.


Thanks for the reply. I have seen a number of markdown parsers written in PHP, but I’m looking for a way to highlight markdown that’s inside a comment block in a php file.
