Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers and to create various html documentation in an easy way.

The overriding design goal for Markdown’s formatting syntax is to make it as readable as possible.

The idea is that a Markdown-formatted document should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it’s been marked up with tags or formatting instructions.

Markdown is a superset of HTML, so any HTML file is valid Markdown.

<!--This means we can use HTML elements in Markdown, such as the comment 
element, and they won't be affected by a markdown parser. However, if you 
create an HTML element in your markdown file, you cannot use markdown syntax 
within that element's contents.-->

## This is an <h2>
### This is an <h3>
#### This is an <h4>
##### This is an <h5>
###### This is an <h6>

This is an h1

This is an h2

*This text is in italics.*
_And so is this text._

**This text is in bold.**
__And so is this text.__

***This text is in both.***
**_As is this!_**
*__And this!__*

~~This text is rendered with strikethrough.~~

This is a paragraph. I'm typing in a paragraph isn't this fun?

Now I'm in paragraph 2.
I'm still in paragraph 2 too!

I'm in paragraph three!

I end with two spaces (highlight me to see them).

There's a <br /> above me!

What is Markdown2Go ?

Let's you instantly convert 'markdown' text files to html.

Markdown2Go is an easy to use desktop utility which allows to convert text files from markdown syntax to html. The program includes all required software like the markdown converter itself, plus some more useful packages like the caius extension (with table support) and bootstrap (a frequently used css framework).


The goal of Markdown2Go is to be both flexible and very easy to use. To this end, the design uses a number of innovative features:

  • Standalone

    • Everything is contained in a single executable.

      So installation is a snap. All you have to do is to copy the binary onto your prefered disk drive of your local machine. There are no worries about compatible libraries or DLLs and no hassles setting up.

    • There are a few configuration options available to choose in the dialog at runtime.

  • Cross-platform

    • Markdown2Go can be compiled for either Windows or OSX/Unix, so it will probably work on any computer that happens to be at hand.
    • For the moment, there are binaries available for Windows and OSX (see download area).


  • Just drag&drop the current working directory (including all markdown text files) onto the entry filed in the GUI to instantly generate html files!

  • Currently supported platforms are: Windows as well as OSX.


The software is open source and can be downloaded here, just click on one of the links provided down below.

Naming conventions:

  • app in the name indicates a binary package for OSX operating system,
  • whereas the *.exe file neame extension is for Windows executables.
