Markdownify Beta released

Finally I’ve completed the Markdownify website. Also I’ve released the first beta, here the news text from SourceForge:

This is the first beta release of Markdownify - the HTML to Markdown converter for PHP.

It is very stable and should handle nearly all features of Markdown and Markdown Extra syntax. Missing are only two things:

  • “Markdown inside block elements” for Markdownify Extra
  • word wrapping

These two things will be added before the first “stable” release. Additionally some performance improvements will hopefully be added.

You are encouraged to use this release in your web applications. Please let me know if you find any bugs. Also a code review by anyone would be very much appreciated!

Download it now

Notice: html2text.php is now history, long live Markdownify!

Mardownify is a great tool, realy. But I have tested the beta release on a server of, a big isp in France, and it reveal a malfonction. The Markdownify script can’t be executed on safety server’s like… I’m disapointed about this.
