CI Crates.io

Extracts (tangles) code fragments from Markdown documents.

This can be used to test examples in README documents to make sure they are always up to date.

The most common use of this crate is installing it as part of the CI script, extracting selected code fragments and then executing them.

cargo install tangler
tangler bash < README.md | bash -euxo pipefail -

The first argument is a selector of the blocks that should be extracted. The tool takes the input markdown document from stdin and outputs only matching blocks to stdout.
