Showdown - Markdown in JavaScript

by 5 others

Markdown is a lightweight markup language based on the formatting conventions that people naturally use in email. As John Gruber writes on the Markdown site. XUL-Enhanced Web Apps

This article presents a little-known use of XUL (Mozilla's user-interface language) and shows how to take advantage of its superior performance and accessibility over HTML while maintaining cross-browser compatibility. I will illustrate this using a proof-of-concept JavaScript library that can render UI widgets using either XUL or DHTML.

Javascript md4, md5 and sha1 algorithms

by 5 others
The MD4, MD5 and SHA-1 algorithms are secure hash functions. They take a string input, and produce a fixed size number - 128 bits for MD4 and MD5; 160 bits for SHA-1. This number is a hash of the input - a small change in the input results in a substantial change in the output. The functions are thought to be secure, in the sense that it would require an enormous amount of computing power to find a string which hashes to a chosen value. In others words, there's no way to decrypt a secure hash. The uses of secure hashes include digital signatures and challenge hash authentication.
