Convert Markdown (Original)
to XWiki

Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your original unextended Markdown files and convert them to XWiki markup 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 XWiki markup

Let’s start with the good parts: XWiki is a free and open source software platform. The idea behing XWiki is to build a software that’s easily extensible. It comes with a Wiki (surprise!), a search, a blog, a file manager, a calendar, forums and tasks. A real jack of all trades. The text markup language looks like the MediaWiki syntax, but a few extra features. You can even add CSS to parts of your document (not sure if that’s a good idea though), or even complex things like a filterable table. Unfortunately the XWiki platform is written in Java. You should probably have some experience with Java to extend it’s functionality. That’s definitely not for me.

The files end with .txt by default. More about XWiki markup files
