Furigana (ruby text) support in markdown?

I know the furigana (ruby text) isn’t a part of the standard markdown specifications, however I need it for my site, which I’m currently starting to migrate from the static site generator of Nuxt.js to Zola. Nuxt.js uses the markdown-it npm package to do markdown rendering, which has a wide variety of different packages that you can use to extend its functionality. I ended up using furigana-markdown-it, which uses the syntax [猫]{ねこ} and works great. Is there any way for me to add similar functionality to Zola? I wouldn’t mind implementing it myself. Thank you in advance!


I try an update of the topic. It interests me a lot.
