zimdown

zimdown is a ZIM to markdown conversion tool.

Originally, I created zimdown to turn my existing notes into notes that could be easily read by the github markdown interpreter. I was looking for a way to markdown my notes so that they could be written in vim with no problems whatsoever. Here is the result.

So far the process looks a little something like this

zimdown.c

  1. Converts all syntax of a ZIM file into GFM (GitHub flavored markdown)

Currently, the following objects are converted:

  • italics
  • bold
  • strikethrough
  • headers
  • images
  • linebreak/formatting

Suggested call looks like

zimdown <zimFile> <mdFile>

####TODO

  1. Add the -i flag (inverse) to allow for md->zim conversions
  2. Completion of syntax, so all zim syntax can be converted
  3. Add the -d flag (directory) to convert entire directories.
  4. Add -h flag to produce HTML file zim->markdown->html

To Compile zimdown

make

Is this program even necessary? Probably not. Don't rain on my parade.
