Markdown to HTML using Byteline's workflow automation

Markdown is an easy-to-use markup language that you can use to create formatted rich text. It has a simple syntax to format text as headers, lists, boldface, italics, etc.

This blog explores how you can convert Markdown data to HTML using the Byteline No-Code platform. Many cloud applications rely on RichText formatting for their Content Management Systems (CMS) or databases. When working with no-code automation, you often need to input data into these rich text fields in the specific format required by the application.

While Markdown is a common format used by platforms like Airtable, others like Webflow CMS prefer HTML for their RichText fields. This means that when automating tasks with Webflow CMS, you must send HTML data to populate rich text values. Consequently, you may need to convert between Markdown and HTML to streamline your automation process. In this blog, we'll explore various solutions for converting Markdown to HTML.

Solution: Automation

Byteline supports the conversion of a Markdown to HTML on its workflow automation and data sync products. This blog covers for workflow automation, which lets you build a custom flow using various Byteline task nodes to automate your work. Learn more.

Workflow Automation

Using Action Node

For Markdown to HTML conversion, you can use the "Markdown to HTML" action node. You can reference Markdown data dynamically using Byteline expressions within your workflow. This allows you to easily convert Markdown to HTML as part of your automation process.

Using Function

For even greater convenience, Byteline offers a built-in function called markdownToHtml. This function enables you to perform Markdown to HTML conversion directly within any action node, eliminating the need for a dedicated "Markdown to HTML" node. For instance, if you're using the Webflow - Create/Update node and need to set a rich text field, you can use the following syntax:

Alternate Solution: Data Sync

Data sync provides a more intuitive approach to syncing data between two Cloud apps. It supports 2-way and 1-way sync with support for filters to fine-tune the data being synced. Markdown to HTML conversion for data sync is covered in Effortless Markdown to HTML Conversion with Byteline's No-Code Data Sync.
