Marky the Markdownifier has seen an uptick in hits since Workflow came out and Federico Vitticci published a Markdownify Webpage workflow that uses it. I thought I should probably fix up a few things. There are still dozens of edge cases, but I fixed most of what’s been reported lately.

  • Handle incorrect emphasis and backticks within bracketed links
  • Fix hard line breaks lost in PHP array join
  • Some styling tweaks for both code view and HTML preview when using the display frame (showframe=1)
  • Whitespace cleanup in Markdown output
  • Misc fixes for certain webpages just showing up blank despite having well-formed markup

Oh yeah, and it does a pretty good job of resolving relative urls in href and src attributes to keep images and links intact.

Have fun.
