Markdown Plugin II

The Markdown Plugin II for Flare lets you easily import Markdown content to Flare, facilitate reviews in the Markdown format, as well as leverage Flare to publish content to Markdown based platforms such as Jekyll or Hugo.

The Markdown Plugin II is based on the CommonMark standard.

Importing Markdown Content to Flare

The plugin imports Markdown content to topics or snippets, and with the TOC conversion features you can quickly create a Flare TOC from the imported content.

Exporting Markdown from Flare to Facilitate Contributions

By exporting Flare content to Markdown, you can leverage platforms such as Github or Bitbucket for reviews and contributions in the Markdown format. You can then easily import the content back into Flare.

Publishing Flare Content to a Markdown Platform

To make the most out of Flare's capabilities but still publish to Markdown based platforms, such as Jekyll or Hugo - you can build a Clean XHTML output, and then convert the HTML files to Markdown.

“The Markdown plugin is a game changer for me. By moving our content to Markdown, we can feed our support portal CMS while still generating high-quality PDFs from Flare. But most importantly, it also helps democratize content maintenance beyond the increasingly limited pool of tech writers with Flare expertise. And Mattias’ responsiveness to questions and issues is simply the best I have ever seen in the software business.”

I just wanted to say, as a final note, once I cleaned up the markdown content we have (simple search and replace of tags), your plugin worked beautifully and saved me a lot of time.
Also, your customer service is top notch.
Cheers and thank you!
