‹› markdown.extensions.legacy_attrs

An extension to Python Markdown which implements legacy attributes.

Prior to Python-Markdown version 3.0, the Markdown class had an enable_attributes keyword which was on by default and provided for attributes to be defined for elements using the format {@key=value}. This extension is provided as a replacement for backward compatibility. New documents should be authored using attr_lists. However, numerous documents exist which have been using the old attribute format for many years. This extension can be used to continue to render those documents correctly.
