Smartdown for Craft is a Twig Filter which brings the unbridled joy of Markdown Extra and SmartyPants to Craft.

Craft already supports standard Markdown, but sadly standard Markdown doesn't support lots of useful things such as footnotes, fenced code blocks, and tables. It also does nothing to spruce up your typography, leaving your site with an embarrassment of straight quotes, and faux ellipses.

Smartdown plugs both of these gaps, turning your website into a typographic dreamboat.
