Markdown Transform API

High-level API to transform markdown into different formats.


npm install -g @accordproject/markdown-transform

Basic Usage

const transform = require('@accordproject/markdown-transform').transform;

// convert a markdown string to an html string
//   first argument is the markdown string to be converted
//   second argument is the source format
//   third argument is an array of destination formats to pass through
const htmlString = await transform(markdownString, 'markdown', ['html']);

Note that the call to transform returns a Promise.

The third argument to the transform function can be used to force the transform to visit an optional intermediate format. For example, passing ['ciceromark_noquotes','html'] will transform the source to ciceromark_noquotes followed by all the transformations necessary to transform from ciceromark_noquotes to html.

The example below transforms input markdown, stripping quotes from around variables, and then converts to HTML.

const result = await transform(acceptanceCiceroEdit, 'markdown', ['ciceromark_noquotes','html']);

Transformation Graph

You can generate a PlantUML state diagram for the supported transformations using the following code:

const generateTransformationDiagram = require('@accordproject/markdown-transform').generateTransformationDiagram;
const plantUMLStateDiagram = generateTransformationDiagram();

The diagram below (showing all supported transformations) is automatically generated by ./scripts/generateDiagram.js.
