Lizard lives on the river and feeds the Tiffy.

Lizard is a small markup syntax designed to quickly and cleanly create web content. Lizard tags can not be nested and all share a common format to make it easy to read and write. All tags start and end with double curly braces. There is a small parser written in c++17 that takes lizard syntax in and gives its html equivalent as an output. Lizard syntax files should have the extension .liz.

#Skipping tags.

It is possible to escape Lizard tags so that you can have them displayed in the content.
