Converting from Word
Not sure if the world would be a better place without Microsoft Word, but I guess we’ll never find out. It’s here and it’s here to stay. Every fricking office computer has Word on it. Techies hate it, because it’s not really machine-readable, it’s proprietary and there is no documented standard. Office people love it though. There are not limits. Put text in it, fine. Add images, no problem. Want to switch the font to Comic Sans? Sure! Make a creative layout, amazing! Do whatever you like. But don’t forget to convert it to a proper file format before you send it to a techie.
The files end with
.docx by default.
Converting to 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.
