It’s not perfect, but makes the conversion a heck of a lot easier:
[Edit 20150919: added more converters: now at least there is competition (:]
Then there is this Python script and module aaronsw/html2text:
html2text – Convert HTML to Markdown-formatted text.
reverse_markdown – Ruby gem to convert html into markdown.
html2markdown – simple and flexible html to markdown converter.
In C#, there is a library with tests, but without a console front-end baynezy/Html2Markdown:
Html2Markdown – A library for converting HTML to markdown syntax in C#.
Finally I found something for PHP lovers: html-to-markdown:
html-to-markdown – Convert HTML to Markdown with PHP
I don’t have time to test them all now, so I go with the first two for now until I run in trouble (they both run in the browser which is very convenient), then test the others until I’ve the least trouble.
