Math Syntax

To minimize interference between Markdown and KaTex, some standard LaTeX delimiters (indicated below) are disabled by default to avoid conflict with Markdown syntax. LaTeX syntax can be enabled in the options.

Inline Math

  • Single Dollar Signs (requires LaTeX delimiters): . When LaTeX syntax is enabled, dollar signs used in non-math contexts should be escaped with a backslash:

  • Single Backslash with Parentheses (requires LaTex delimiters): . Conflicts with Markdown's escaped syntax for parentheses .

  • Double Backslash with Parentheses:

  • Single Dollar with Backquote:

Copy Website Content As (clean!) Markdown

Markdownizr is a Google Chrome extension that lets you extract clean Markdown from web pages. If you like Markdown, plain text files, or being productive, then keep scrolling.

Anything is possible, if you just use Markdown

Once content is in Markdown format, the possibilities are endless - create PDFs, Word/RTFs, HTML websites, books, and more instantly. There are a veritable plethora of free (and paid) tools for Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, other operating systems, and even your browser.

Markdownizr has your back

With Markdownizr, you don't have to manually format any content from a website to reference it in notes, cite it in your documentation, or whatever you may be plotting.

How to use

To get started, select some text on a web page and click the Markdownizr "M" icon in the Chrome toolbar. The Markdown will be copied to your computer's clipboard so you can paste it anywhere. You can also right click and select "Get Markdown" if that makes you happy.

Get the whole page, and nothing but the page

If you want to copy the content of the entire page, just make sure that no text is selected and click the "M" button or right-click option. Done!

Keyboard shortcuts == winning;

Flexible and damn-near future-proof

While other Markdown extraction browser extensions are locked in to a prescribed method of filtering out the html code, Markdownizr puts you in the driver's seat with simple yet powerful settings.

We've added some sensible defaults in hopes that your Markdown turns out well-formed, but the internet is a wild place. Here are the avilable options:

Strip Elements

This first text box is a comma-separated list of HTML elements that Markdownizr will take the content from, but delete the surrounding HTML tags (code).

Delete Elements

This box is the same as the first, but any elements here will be deleted entirely - inner content and all. Use this to get rid of unexpected cruft from tags, etc.

Free and open-source, forever

Markdownizr is and always will be free, open-source software. It was developed for fun and released because... well why not?

The extension is 100% free of malware, ads, trackers, and gremlins. You can check out the source code on GitHub.

Ready to up your markdown game?

Installing Markdown viewer on Chrome and Firefox

Your email is about to get awesome.

Until now, formatting your email has been a hassle. If you're writing an email of any length and complexity, you've found yourself constantly fiddling around: selecting text, clicking formatting buttons, and then fiddling some more to get it right. This is tedious, frustrating, and slow.

Sound familiar?

Markdown Here allows you to write complex email in simple text, never taking your hands off the keyboard. When you're finished, just one click of your mouse will make your email ready to send.

You write your email in something called "Markdown", which is... so simple that it's almost not worth describing. If you've ever used asterisks and dashes and spaces to add emphasis and structure when you write, then you already use it.

Skeptical? Play around in the boxes below...
