De-lurking because this is a subject near and dear to me. I'm an ardent
fan of Vimwiki, but it didn't support the One True lightweight markup
language I'd chosen for my personal content: AsciiDoc. Adding full
AsciiDoc support to Vimwiki was a real pain, so I ended up making my own
Vim extension with identical shortcuts.

I now have a body of .adoc files that are navigable wiki-style within
Vim and *also* export (and publish) as HTML and Gopher with some simple
shell scripts!

Check out how small the extension's source is:


AsciiDoc links are way harder to parse than gem! Fork this thing and
make your dreams come true. Wiki paradise awaits.
