hunt-markdown is powerfull markdown spec parsing and randering library for Dlang. It's fast and clean. Api design like java's commonmark library.

example code:
```import hunt.markdown.node.Node;
import hunt.markdown.parser.Parser;
import hunt.markdown.renderer.html.HtmlRenderer;

Parser parser = Parser.builder().build();
Node document = parser.parse("This is *New*");
HtmlRenderer renderer = HtmlRenderer.builder().build();
renderer.render(document);  // "<p>This is <em>New</em></p>\n"
```

More markdown spec like this:
https://spec.commonmark.org/0.28/

Very cool! I don't think we had a CommonMark parser.

Since the code appears to be a direct port from Atlassian's library, you should also include the BSD license file, including the original copyright notice (https://github.com/atlassian/commonmark-java/blob/master/LICENSE.txt). Not sure whether the Apache-2.0 license that is set in dub.sdl is compatible.

Personally, I would also always explicitly mention the source project when doing a fork like this, since it can help a lot in terms of communicating the exposed API, as well as the code stability to be expected. Also, should the project stop being maintained at some point, the original project may still continue to be supported, so backporting changes can be an option. Since we are talking about server applications, tracking inherited security issues can also be important, so documenting the version/commit on which the port is based is also a good idea (probably most important for hunt-http etc.).

Thanks and agreed!

We ported many projects from Java / C# / C++ and Golang. We will add origin project information.

About license, DotNetty use netty APIs, but netty use Apache-2.0 and DotNetty use MIT license.

A cool addition would be a sanatizer to allow processing markdown provided by users in a secure way. Right now trying to build something like a forum supporting markdown would only end in lots of XSS everywhere.

The end developer could probably create a sanatizer himself but:

* security works best when the wheel isn't invented over and over again, such piece of software is hard to get right[1], better have a centralized effort

* writting a sanitizer requires building a MD parser so it's worth baking it into the library (but with a way to disable it for trusted inputs).

Otherwise, it would be good to mention that this is not fit to manage user inputs and should be kept server-side.
