Converting from GitHub-Flavored Markdown

We love Markdown, because it’s just plain text. It’s simple and powerful at the same time. Pure beauty. It’s this one standard that works everywhere. Okay, it works a little bit different depending on the platform you are using, but we all agree that the GH flavor is the one and only Markdown flavor, don’t we? Actually, I’m not sure what’s so special about this MD standard, but never mind. Hopefully you know what’s it all about. Anyway, here is your free online converter for GitHub-flavored Markdown. Just upload your file, cross fingers and download the result. Hope it works.

The files end with .md 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.
