I have a minor correction to this talk: the makeup_elixir application doesn’t contain an “elixir formatter”, it contains a lexer. The formatter is common to alm languages.

The general workflow is to have a lexer, which converts the input string into a list of tokens and a formatter which converts the list of tokens into something else (like a string with HTML).

The token format is documented considered part of the API so that you can weite your own formatter.

Thank you for the correction, and thank you for writing the library. It has proven very useful in my projects!
