Using Markdown in CakePHP

Markdown rocks. I lately fell in love with it when I was setting up this very blog. You can just write easy-to-read and easy-to-write plain text files, and Markdown takes care of the rest. For this blog I had used a Markdown script I found that parses plain text and outputs it as HTML. It allows me to write posts in a simple/plain format and just pump it into the database as is.
