Are there any plans to develop a PHP library implementation of MultiMarkdown? That would enable CMSs such as Perch or Statamic to support MMD as content.

    I have no plans to develop anything, but MMD is written in C, so it will
    compile for essentially any hardware/OS out there. In my experience,
    all modern/useful languages offer one of two things:

    1) The ability to "shell" out to run a command, which allows the use of MMD

    2) The ability to "link" to a compiled C library to use the existing MMD

    Others have already done this for node, ruby, etc.

    I see no reason to entirely rewrite MMD in another language, which will
    in all likelihood result in decreased performance, new opportunities for
    bugs, and will require simultaneous upkeep of two (or more) codebases.
