Which Markdown parser does Replit use?

I haven't been able to find any good information on Google Search, so exactly what Markdown parser does Replit use, and how can I load it on my web page?

Personally, there really isn't a difference between the specific parser -- most results are similar enough, and overall I actually don't like the replit parser -- escapes are absolute garbage

I believe they now use the github flavored markdown.
So maybe that means they use showdown?

@Coder100 So, how do I load it into a web page?

every markdown parser is the same

no, they vary by implementation -- like some languages :eyeroll: @ch1ck3n
