Description from extension meta

This extension works like a web clipper, but it downloads articles in markdown format.

Image from store MarkDownload - Markdown Web Clipper
Description from store This is an extension to clip websites and download them into a readable markdown file. Please keep in mind that it is not guaranteed to work on all websites. To use this add-on, simply click the add-on icon while you are browsing the page you want to save offline. A popup will show the rendered markdown so you can make minor edits or copy the text, or you can click the download button to download an .md file. Selecting text will allow you to download just the selected text Context Menus You can also right-click on pages, images, links and selections to copy or download snippets of Markdown. You can also download all tabs in a window as Markdown files External Libraries It uses the following libraries: - Readability.js by Mozilla in version from commit 52ab9b5c8916c306a47b2119270dcdabebf9d203. This library is also used for the Firefox Reader View and it simplifies the page so that only the important parts are clipped. (Licensed under Apache License Version 2.0) - Turndown by Dom Christie in version 7.0.1 is used to convert the simplified HTML (from Readability.js) into markdown. (Licensed under MIT License) - Moment.js version 2.27.0 used to format dates in template variables Permissions - Data on all sites: used to enable "Download All Tabs" functionality - no other data is captured or sent online - Access tabs: used to access the website content when the icon in the browser bar is clicked. - Manage Downloads: necessary to be able to download the markdown file. - Storage: used to save extension options - Clipboard: used to copy Markdown to clipboard Pricing Huh? This is an open-source extension I made for fun. It's completely free. However, if you absolutely have to send me money because you like it that much, feel free to throw some coins in my hat via the following: - https://github.com/sponsors/deathau - https://paypal.me/deathau The Common Mark icon courtesy of https://github.com/dcurtis/markdown-mark

  • (2021-07-22) Y9Uv6 uxWY: 在chrome上选项显示正确,但是在edge上,无法完全显示所有选项,例如:Downlaod images alongside markdown files. ------------------ On chrome, the options are displayed correctly, but on edge, not all options are fully displayed, e.g. Downlaod images alongside markdown files.
  • (2021-07-02) Luke Terheyden: OMG THIS! This is the extension I've been looking for. It has tons of options for exactly how to copy and markup for citing in Markdown. ❤️ A feature request - support prepending lines with ">" for Markdown citation formatting! Thanks!
  • (2021-05-16) 分享: thanks a lot!
  • (2021-05-02) 张大锤: could not download images.
  • (2021-04-23) Daniele: App is good but I've a issue when I try to convert an offline HTML page opened in Chrome. With online articles and things like that works perfectly, do you have any idea?
  • (2021-03-30) Weber B: The best tool I work with Obsidian.
  • (2021-03-07) wpnccbawlz: Saving pictures to a subfolder does not work. We have: 1) The default save folder (Downloads/) 2) A folder to save a set of pages and images (Folder inside Downloads/ to store MarkDownload clips: {title}/) 3) Image filename prefix template: img/ Example: {title} |- {title}.md |- img/image.jpg Any nesting will not allow images to be downloaded.
  • (2021-01-01) Cococatt Hung: have formatting issues with tables,pls fix in next update!
  • (2020-12-27) Dave: Super clean and works like a charm!
  • (2020-11-11) Hiroki Uemura: Good!! I have looked at many other "Copy as Markdown" Chrome Extensions and I think this is the best tool.
  • (2020-11-05) Luke Hamburg: This is a godsend for getting web content into Obsidian. I just found out about it today, and already feel that it's going to be indispensible. Thank you!! Looking forward to see it (and Obsidian) evolve further.
  • (2020-09-24) Manuel Miguel: Gracias al desarrollador, por esta excelente aplicación.
  • (2020-09-05) Joseph Petty: Excellent time-saver! This is a great way to quickly backup a webpage to a local .md file with formatted text and images. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks! FYI- the save as .md works for me. Sounds like there may have been a bug before but it's working fine now. I have to re-select the desired folder path each time, though. A default location could save a few more clicks.
  • (2020-07-19) Do it Yourself: Don't know why, but the file is not saved with .md extension. Also it has weird name like 1ed09c43-7787-4e32-92e4-dd9609778696. Can't use it to effectively save files into the Obsidian\Articles folder. Would be nice if the saving folder also could be specified, so the files will be saved directly into Obsidian\Articles folder.
