Firstly there is lots of issue regarding line spaces, indentation & comments.

Look at this !

Here you can check source code whether it meets drupal coding standards or not, and advise you what to change in your code. You can repeat review after your commits, and can fix those errors.

Manual Review :

1) Please don't add LICENSE.txt, it will be added by drupal community after completing review process and full project release.

2) Use L() function to make your links in line no 19, 20 in & line 67 in

3) Do not add "?>" PHP delimiter at the end of files is discouraged in ./libraries/markdown/markdown.php.

I've done some fixes in my code, but external code in the libraries directory is out of my control. It's here because there is not a simple way to download it all. Is there any way to make code reviewer ingnoring all "libraries" directory?

I don't know for sure if the module is ready to be a full project, but after reviewing it I don't see any problems with it.

Just one thing, it's better to not include any javascript library, you should encourage users to use the common libraries directory instead. That way the files can be shared across modules.

Status:Needs review» Needs work

first ) see this automatic review :
there are many erorrs ...
you must see drupal coding standards :

second ) if you are using external libraries you must use libraries module : and add this module as a dependency in your .info file and in your project page give a link to users to download the libraries and put them in the libraries folder this is very better way
