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 1fde3ac626bc4c2e5e54daa57c57d48b7ed9c574. 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 7.1.1 is used to convert the simplified HTML (from Readability.js) into markdown. (Licensed under MIT License) - Moment.js version 2.29.4 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

  • (2023-02-15) Victor Kalmykov: Удобное приложение для сохранения текста со страницы в формате markdown. Много полезных настроек, в том числе специфичных для Obsidian.
  • (2023-02-13) Tao Lu: Great works
  • (2023-01-07) ptocflin (Potato_tube): works so well, appreciate
  • (2023-01-05) Dean: Most of the functionality works fine but I can't get the .md files to automatically save directly into the specific Vault folder?
  • (2022-12-29) Costas Kanellopoulos: Works like a charm.
  • (2022-12-22) Kamil: Nice plugin, but after installed, can not write letter Ł (option+shift+L)
  • (2022-11-08) jackie xiao: great plugin! and support obsidian. but need to improve with latex. For example, it generate latex as "w\=gv∥v∥\\mathbf{w} = g \\dfrac{\\mathbf{v}}{\\|\\mathbf{v}\\|}" but the right latex is "\mathbf{w} = g \dfrac{\mathbf{v}}{\|\mathbf{v}\|}"
  • (2022-10-17) Mateusz Witkowski: Files end up in Downloads\My_folder, but I need them to go straight to ObsidianVault folder. I installed Advanced URL addon, but can't do it properly :/ Any tips
  • (2022-10-03) Seghir Issam: Save the files in random name without extension even when i change the setting to specific name and md file extension and obsidian vault output!!
  • (2022-10-02) Samej Spenser: Excellet!
  • (2022-09-25) Shishir Urdhwareshe: Excellent extension - using it daily many times. Also, integration with Obsidian is also very good. Thanks for this
  • (2022-08-24) David Blue: I have spent what feels like a lifetime exploring markdown-supporting capture tools and this *still* sets the standard, incredibly.
  • (2022-08-24) Leon Master: It works well.
  • (2022-08-12) Alan Grainger: Works flawlessly so far in my experience.
  • (2022-07-29) Lukas Labryszewski: Excellent extension. I use it all the time to import notes to Joplin. Thank you so much for your work on this! One issue would be nice to address is code blocks. If it's a single line and sometimes a double line with a break, the converter converts it with a single back-tick. Example: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-unix-appleosx-bsd-cat-command-examples/#19 Summing up code block has 2 lines: man cat cat --help Result: It gets converted to: `$ man cat $ cat --help` Expected: ``` $ man cat $ cat --help ``` Single line code blocks should also be converted with triple back-ticks unless they are inline. Right now I always find fixing these. It's not a huge deal, but would be a 🍒 on top of an already extremely helpful tool. 👍👍 Thank you! 👍👍
  • (2022-07-02) Ivan Kudinov: It works extremely well and as expected. Love to use it with obsidian.

  • (2022-04-13) Ikaro jj: Una excelente herramienta
  • (2022-04-01) Chris Allen: Does exactly what it says! Great for Obsidian and it's customizable. Also the customization UI is one of the prettiest and intuitive customization screens I've seen in any extension.
  • (2022-02-27) Rodney Daut: This was working very well. But today it says "You've reached the limit Basic users are limited to 7 highlights per document. Upgrade to LINER Premium and make unlimited highlights." I already have LINER Premium though. Is this issue a conflict between LINER and MarkDownload?
  • (2022-02-15) Kjell Inge Bakkeland Sandvik: Not working for systems that is not english, because there's no folder called "Dovnloads". It should be possible to point to another folder.
  • (2022-02-13) alx alxctc: Become one of my must-have gizmos, along w. tty, nvim, hugo static site generator, and cloud serv. for images and ATT.
  • (2022-01-10) Ryan Fu: This is a such efficiently useful tools for my web research information collection with my own css. Appreciate all your work!!!
  • (2022-01-05) lee renlong: it is not friendly to table
  • (2021-12-08) Rain ISouth: 非常好用
  • (2021-11-11) Quan Wang: Could you support custom download directories, not in ~/Downloads folder?
  • (2021-10-18) Alliyya Mo: Looking to be incredibly useful for loading content into Obsidian, `Copy Tab URL as Markdown URL` doesn't seem to be working, nothing seems to be added to my clipboard, other options seem to work great. I tried on a variety of articles from: https://news.ycombinator.com/news, let me know if it's a me thing. If it does work, i was wondering if the formatting would include the page title's name? Would it be [Page title](URL) or would it be [URL](URL) Thanks, great extension.
  • (2021-09-30) kstmhk salai: Best unparalleled markdown web clipper. Options are perfect for me, especially one to download images. Even if I haven't use Obsidian md app, I would use this. Thanks.
  • (2021-09-17) Viktor Škorjanc: I was using Notion web clipper, but it was having trouble with paywalls and pictures. This application works like a charm. The only thing it struggles with are tables.
  • (2021-09-02) Faiz Sheikh: Excellent extension, thanks for making it. But unfortunately the template format is not working.
  • (2021-08-26) Luke Terheyden: Incredible, lots of options, polished UI, love it.
  • (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) David Kaminski: 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.
