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
$ gem install markdown2confluence
$ gem install bundler $ git clone git://github.com/jedi4ever/markdown2confluence.git $ bundle install vendor
If using Gem:
$ markdown2confluence <inputfile>
If using bundler:
$ bundle exec bin/markdown2confluence <inputfile>
there is really one class to edit
