Copy as Markdown for Chrome & Firefox
Do you often type Markdown code manually for a link or image, or even all tabs in a window, and feel tired? Copy as Markdown can help you!
Copy as Markdown is a browser extension helps you copy the following things as Markdown to your system clipboard:
Current Tab as Link
A Link in the Page
An Image in the Page
An Image that is wrapped with a Link
All Tabs as a List of Links
Keyboard Shortcuts (Chrome-only)
You can add keyboard shortuts for copying tab(s) as Markdown. By default, Copy as Markdown does not assign any keyboard shortcuts.
- Open Extensions Page at chrome://extensions/.
- Scroll to the bottom and click "Keyboard shortcuts"
- Assign Keyboard Shortcuts in the dialog.
- [Chrome] When copying an image, the image code does not include the alternative text of that image. This is due to API restriction.
- [Firefox] Cannot add a popover when clicking the toolbar button. There is an API for that on Firefox 30.
