Converting from Vimwiki
For people that think Vim is not confusing enough: Let me introduce you to VimWiki. A personal wiki inside of Vim. Maxim Kim, the developer of VimWiki, was stuck in Vim for years. After trying to exit Vim for a while, he tried to accept his fate and used the time behind bars to invent something new. VimWiki was born. It consists of a number of linked text files that have their own syntax highlighting. Use it to organize notes, manage to-dos, write documentation or maintain a diary (nobody will expect your diary inside of Vim). I wonder if someone already invented
The files end with
.wiki 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.
