    Show Markdown in a page

    Syntax highlighting for code blocks

    Open Source and Free

    You can display Markdown text in your page. Reuse your already formatted content!

    Optionally show syntax highlighting using highlight.js, and choose from any number of styles.

    Markdown rendering is provided by the Remarkable library, which is compatible with Github-flavored Markdown and CommonMark, and therefore this plugin will remain open source and free.

    More details

    Are you running Confluence Cloud? Are you looking to use markdown in your Confluence pages? Then this add-on just might be just what you're looking for.

    Worried about data security? This add-on is implemented as a "static" add-on, which means that no information is transferred to another server; the markdown content is rendered by a Javascript library that runs in your browser, so at no time is your data transferred to any system outside of your organization's control.

    While I know lots of people that are interested about this plugin, I find unacceptable that it does store code outside your instance.

    There is no code that is stored outside your instance. The only code that is pulled from the server is the code that sets up the rendering in your browser. No code is pushed anywhere, it is only pulled by your browser.

    Works great. We just pasted in our old markdown from bitbucket wikis and it worked (after selecting github style markdown in the macro-block). It's a little sluggish on reload. I really hope this continues to be supported as lack of markdown in the way this plugin provides was nearly a deal-breaker for us in using confluence.

    Thanks for your review! It's always nice to hear that it was helpful.

    Although it's not well publicized, there is an option to insert markdown text directly into Confluence, as long as you don't need to reuse the markup (as it is converted to Confluence storage format). In the editor, just click on "Insert", "Markup" (or press Ctrl+Shift+D) and in the popup window, there is a dropdown where you can choose "Markdown" and insert markdown-formatted text directly into the page.
