By default, pandoc’s extended version of markdown is used as a markup language, but reStructuredText, LaTeX, HTML, DocBook, or Emacs Org-mode markup can also be used. Pages can be exported in a number of different formats, including LaTeX, RTF, OpenOffice ODT, and MediaWiki markup. Gitit can be configured to display TeX math (using texmath) and highlighted source code (using highlighting-kate).

Other features include:
– plugins: dynamically loaded page transformations written in Haskell
– categories
– TeX math
– syntax highlighting of source code files and code snippets (using highlighting-kate)
– caching
– Atom feeds (site-wide and per-page)
– a library, “Network.Gitit”, that makes it simple to include a gitit wiki in any happstack application
