About gettalong

I have been developing software in my spare time since around 1994 and came in contact with open source software around 1998 when I was introduced to Linux. Since then I have been using open source software day in and day out and given back by releasing my software as open source.

list of open source projects I developed can be found on my homepage, the most popular one being kramdown, a Markdown-superset converter that is used by the popular static website generator Jekyll as its default Markdown engine which incidentally means that Github Pages uses it, too.

If you are using one of my open source projects (kramdown, hexapdf, webgen, cmdparse, ...), you are welcome to become a patron to further sustainable open source software! And if you are not using one (yet), pledges are still welcome!☺

Thanks to everyone who is contributing or supporting in one way or another!

I will be able to work one day per month on my open source projects, specifically on features requests that have been postponed due to lack of time.
