Convert Markdown (Original)
to OpenOffice

Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your original unextended Markdown files and convert them to OpenOffice ODT files. Yes, it’s that easy.

Converting from original unextended Markdown

The original unextended Markdown is based on the syntax outlined in John Gruber’s original design document. It already has many elements, but missed features like tables, code blocks, syntax highlighting, URL auto-linking and footnotes. Things that most of us take for granted today. I don’t know why anyone would stick with the original Markdown format, but I guess it’s something for purists. Or maybe you have a legacy system that only supports the original Markdown format. Anyway, have fun and convert to or from the strict version, the original Markdown format. We are happy to support the free conversion from and to it.

The files end with .md by default.

Converting to OpenOffice ODT

Having office files in a proprietary format is a big risk, that you should avoid. Thanks to OpenOffice it’s not even hard to do. With the OpenOffice ODT format we’ve got an open format, that is based on other open formats. Every ODT file is a Zip file, that contains at least a content.xml (an XML file) with the — you might have guessed it already - the content. You can open the XML file in the program of your liking, update the content and re-open it in your office program without worrying to break the file. This enables you to interact with your office files through code. And even more important, you can be pretty sure there will always be software to open and edit those files. That’s a big plus, isn’t it?

The files end with .odt by default. More about OpenOffice ODT files
