A powerful, readable, easy-to-learn markup language

Unidok is a new Markup language, inspired by AsciiDoctor and Markdown. It is very easy to read and to learn while offering powerful features such as macros.


Here you can find pre-built binaries for Linux, Windows and macOS.

If you want to build it yourself, install the Rust toolchain and run cargo install.


Unidok should look familiar if you're familiar with Markdown. It follows the CommonMark specification closely where it makes sense, but it also omits some Markdown features that I feel are unhelpful, and adds new features. Notable examples are:

  • Supports ^superscript^, #subscript#, ~line-through~ text, tables, math formulas, and macros

  • Does not support indented code blocks, only fenced code blocks

  • Sane HTML parsing

  • It does not support laziness, i.e. in a list item or blockquote, all lines must be indented or preceded with > respectively, not just the first line
