Zim

markup import

Asked by Timmie on 2016-03-13

I would like to copy text from websites into Zim.

In order to keep the formatting, e.g. links and font, I would like to convert the HTML into the right markup.

Is there a markup specification which resembles the markup / syntax used by Zim?

With this, I could use an online converter such as
http://pandoc.org/try/

Or is the body markup used by Zim very unique?

I think manual covers part of your question: http://www.zim-wiki.org/manual/Help/Wiki_Syntax.html

Also you might want to look into the zim firefox plugin if that happens to be your browser of choice

Thanks.

So for the records here:
It#s modelled after DokuWiki Syntax

If you need a converter e.g. to get markdown or rest or anything else read for Zim use pandoc (1.13):
