Markdown to Confluence Convertor

Recently in Confluence 4.0 the Wiki Markup Editor was removed for various engineering reasons. I like to type my text in wiki style, and most of all using Markdown.

This code is a quick hack for converting markdown to Atlassian confluence markup language. Which you can still insert via the menu.

It's not a 100% full conversion, but I find it rather usuable already. I will continue to improve where possible.

The gem is based on Kramdown

Installation:

Via gem

$ gem install markdown2confluence

From github:

$ gem install bundler
$ git clone git://github.com/jedi4ever/markdown2confluence.git
$ bundle install vendor

Usage:

If using Gem:

$ markdown2confluence <inputfile>

If using bundler:

$ bundle exec bin/markdown2confluence <inputfile>

Extending/Improving it:

there is really one class to edit
