@eighthave hi, I have file "hello.md" with two lines in it, one says "hello world" and line two says "bye!". How do I install weblate and mark this file as translatable? Have a few websites written in markdown that need translation. Asked weblate issue tracker, they said that po4a can be used & pointed to fdroid site as an example. It is large and complicated, I will not need Jekyll, just the .md to weblate (and back) part of it. Could you please write a small tutorial? Are you on IRC? Thanks!!
