Converting from Emacs Org mode

Oh man, we really learned a lot about text formats already, but Emacs Org mode is the nerdiest thing ever. It’s like a note keeping app and a todo app, like a project management tool and a book authoring tool. But all that based on a plain-text file. That’s real digital minimalism. No cloud, no binary data, no proprietary file formats, just a simple, good old plain-text file. Add headlines, lists, paragraphs, tasks, time tracking, agendas, tables. Thank you, Carsten Dominik, for developing such a great file format. By the way, the logo is a unicorn and that’s fair, after all it’s very unique.

The files end with .txt by default.

Converting to CommonMark Markdown

Markdown was developed in 2004, with a spec and an implementation in Perl. Over the years implementations for more and more programming languages evolved. Unfortunately the specification was ambiguous in some points, so some implementations did things differently. CommonMark was developed 10 years later, in 2014, with an unambiguous spec and tests to see if new implementations are correct according to the spec. A few big players (GitHub, GitLab, Reddit, Swift and many more) adopted this common standard. So it’s basically the standard you might know already. Upload your CommonMark Markdown files and convert them for free, to any other text format! Or upload your text files and convert them all to CommonMark Markdown, for free!

The files end with .md by default. More about CommonMark Markdown files
