BEWARE: THIS CODE IS NOT CURRENTLY FUNCTIONAL
ClothBlue is currently undergoing a major rewrite and the code currently on GitHub is almost certainly non-functional.
HTML to Markdown library
What it is
A script to convert HTML into Markdown markup for use, for example, with BlueCloth.
All you need is Ruby.
Available as a gem on GitHub: (coming soon)
Or download from: http://clothblue.rubyforge.org
Or get the source: http://github.com/cpjolicoeur/clothblue
This is beta software, and only a few Markdown rules have been implemented yet:
- font markup and weight (<b>, <strong>, ...)
- text formatting (<sub>, <sup>, <ins>,<del>)
require 'clothblue' text = ClothBlue.new("<b>Bold</b> <em>HTML</em>!") text.to_markdown
Feel free to contact me, or view the homepage.

ClothBlue received inspiration from the ClothRed library and the Markdownify PHP library.
Markdown is, of course, written by John Gruber. Michel Fortin's Markdown Extra support is also included.
All attempts have been made to pass Michel Fortin's MDTest Suite as well.
