Nice gem from Steve Klabnik that extracts metadata from and parses Markdown files. Embedding post metadata in YAML format at the top of the file is a common approach employed by several static site generators such as Jekyll, Octopress, and nanoc as well as NestaCMS, the CMS that powers this site. Nesta's metadata isn't pure YAML and at times I wish it were.
