Added support for wiki-style links to Reminders and GoodTask.

A slightly tweaked version of the standard Markdown syntax in Drafts to match the highlight and strikethrough syntax used in iA Writer.

  • “==“ for highlights
  • “~~” for strikethroughs

This updated version of iA Markdown also supports wiki-style links to Reminders and GoodTask (inspired by this forum thread).

  • Reminders: [[r:]] — requires the reminder’s identifier property, which you can find using a Drafts script.
  • GoodTask: [[gt:]] — launches a search in GoodTask for the text you use in the link (e.g., a task’s title).

This syntax is simply meant to make it easier to switch between the two apps while writing without losing highlights or strikethroughs.

It doesn’t change anything in previews; it only affects text in the editor.
