Auto Markdown - fix version

0.88MB. Updated 2021-06-19.


This is a fix version of the excellent addon by @gregorr with bugfixes to work with the latest stable Anki (including native Night Mode). See Github to contribute. Recent changelog (for full changelog see here: 2020-12-06 2020-09-12 2020-09-05 2020-08-15 --- This add-on was developed to bring the Markdown functionality provided by Power Format Pack to Anki 2.1. It is not a port of Power Format Pack, nor is it backwards compatible with fields generated by Power Format Pack. Note: a lot of the other functionality provided by Power Format Pack is available between Mini Format Pack, Add Table, and, Add Hyperlink. See github.com to contribute. There are two ways to use this add-on: automatic mode and manual mode. Editing of the generated HTML is prevented in both cases. Automatic mode To indicate that a field should be automatically converted to and from HTML when losing and gaining focus, go to Tools -> Manage Note Types -> Fields for the note type in question and click the checkbox: Automatic mode demo: Manual mode In this mode, you toggle between Markdown and HTML using the button or its shortcut. The shortcut defaults to Ctrl + M and can be changed in the configuration. Manual mode demo: HISTORY

As of 2022-07, Anki 2.1.49:
While this addon has some small issues (I can't seem to get sub-lists working no matter what syntax I use) it seems to be the least-broken addon for displaying markdown AND code highlighting (using code blocks).

A tip for anyone trying to edit inline code appearance: this addon simply wraps characters in `backticks` into <code>blah blah</code>, so changing `code {}` with CSS in `card template` - styling will change those fields

Auto-convert breaks inline images but manual convert is fine.

Hey, thanks for your work. I just thought I'd let you know that I was unable to use this addon to create a Markdown nested unordered list, even though it was correct Markdown -- I can tell because I used an online Markdown to HTML conversion tool and it worked well (and that's how I'm getting my list into Anki).

Hey, sounds like an interesting problem, could you raise it here? https://github.com/natfarleydev/anki-auto-markdown/issues I've never needed this feature so I haven't tested it before.
