A markup language for interactive documents.

Idyll extends the ubiquitous Markdown format to enable the creation of dynamic, interactive narratives for the web. The language and toolchain aim to empower journalists, researchers, and technical experts to create compelling content using familiar tools and processes.

Idyll can be used to create explorable explanations, to power blog engines and content management systems, and to generate dynamic technical reports. The tool can generate standalone webpages or be embedded inside of your existing site.Idyll is supported by the Interactive Data Lab at the University of Washington, and by Rhizome and The Eutopia Foundation.
