You’ve definitely got my interest…
… In my md2pptx Markdown to PowerPoint converter I support tables. But rendering them in Drafts has been tricky. So I have to imagine what they’d look like in a slide.
So this would be very helpful.
There is an extra thing as do - which isn’t part of the Markdown Tables spec - that you might consider…
While the spec supports alignment it doesn’t support width specifications. So, in md2pptx, I count the number of spaces in a column’s header and use that as a proportion. Example:
would yield a table where the first column is left aligned and single width. The second column is right aligned - which you support - and double width.
It’s something to consider. Of course the width specifications are thrown away by REAL Markdown renderers but no harm done.
(In reality in my mdpre Markdown preprocessor I can convert CSV to Markdown tables and use the
=colwidth commands to denote alignments and widths. I’m not suggesting you adopt these, though.)
