Markdown Macro for Confluence

This application makes it quick and simple to support Markdown in Atlassian Confluence. It uses the Flexmark library to convert from Markdown to HTML within Confluence. It can be accessed via:

  • Macro Browser
  • {markdown} tags

This allows Markdowns from the inline text, as well as from a URL (such as GitHub or Bitbucket).
