    JIRA to MarkDown text format converter

    Convert from JIRA text formatting to GitHub Flavored Markdown and back again. Also allows for both to be converted to HTML.


    This module was heavily inspired by the J2M project by Fokke Zandbergen. Major credit to Fokke (and other contributors) for establishing a lot of the fundamental RexExp patterns for this module to work.


    npm install @kmatthews/jira2md

    // If converting from Jira Wiki Syntax to Markdown:
    var md = j2m.to_markdown(jira);

    You can run yarn test or npm test


    Q. Why doesn't this module support conversion of inline markdown?

    A. Jira doesn't support inline code formatting, so the best we can do is to keep the backticks in place.


    npm i @kmatthews/jira2md
