Paste as Markdown

Description from extension meta

Paste as Markdown.

Image from store Paste as Markdown
Description from store Paste the content of the clipboard as Markdown, in any web form. The content of the clipboard can come from anywhere (a text editor, a graphics program, another web page, etc.) and be in rich text format with italics, bold, lists, etc., and it will be converted to Markdown upon pasting. The clipboard content is unchanged, the conversion happens when pasting. Everything happens within the browser, nothing is sent outside of the browser. New (starting with 5.7.2): can now interpret inline styles bold & italic (for Google Docs, etc.)

  • (2020-02-04) Ingo Reinecke: Nice idea. You mentioned that it is based on Turndown, could you enable the tables plugin? Maybe add the available plugins as options for the addon?
  • (2020-01-15) Leo King: Hi, I love the idea, but unfortunately this doesn't work. I tried copying text which I had written in Google Docs into Reddit, and using the Paste as Markdown. The Google Docs text contained bold formatting. There was no markdown when I pasted it into Reddit.
  • (2019-12-20) Michael K.: Je témoigne que cet outil fait bien le travail qu'il doit faire. Récupérer du rich-text et produire du Markdown. Cette extension est donc très utile pour moi qui travaille sur un projet de TALN et sur de la construction de corpus.
