To follow up on my Marker bookmarklet, I’ve created a PopClip extension called WebMarkdown (a.k.a. WebMD) that does pretty much the same thing (take a web page selection and turn it into Markdown). It’s a handy trick when you’re gathering notes or just want to save a portion of an article.

For giggles, I made you a movie. It’s not because I don’t think you grasp what it does already, it’s because I have free time today and it seemed like fun at the time.

WebMarkdown uses an embedded copy of html2text instead of Marky, and relies on PopClip’s ability to gather the HTML from the selection.

I’ve added it to the collection, and you can download the bunch below. The source for all my extensions is available on GitHub.
