    Adds quick and simple support for Markdown in Confluence



    Extended syntax

    Because it is a macro, your original markdown is never lost, and change history is tracked.

    Editing the macro allows you to see a preview without saving the page.

    Support for extended Markdown syntax.

    Doesn't have basic markdown support (nested headings, strikethrough, etc...) Should at least pass the simple wikipedia example! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown

    Not sure what went wrong for you but I tested it and it works fine: http://cl.ly/image/322c1m0U0B3Z

    The only thing that doesn't work is strikethrough which is expected. This is because strikethrough is not part of the original Markdown spec, nor the CommonMark spec: http://spec.commonmark.org/0.21/, nor the IETF draft Markdown spec: https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-appsawg-text-markdown-08

    Why it's 'Unsupported'? I'd like to use it but our IT only allow 'Supported' macros.

    I wrote this during a hackathon we had and don't have dedicated time to work on this. I try and fix any issues reported via Bitbucket when I can.
