Better In-Browser Composing Experience

Have you ever tried writing a long post on your shopify store? If you were as frustrated as we were, you'll understand why we created Markdownify. Markdown is a plain text formatting syntax designed so that it can be converted to HTML and many other formats. People all over the world are using it to build better websites. It is easy to learn, and supported on every platform. Now you can edit your shopify descriptions the same way, and stop wasting time with the popularly problematic Shopify text editor.

How It Works

When editing a product description, blog post, collection description, or page, simply reach up to the top right corner and select the [...] drop-down menu. If markdownify is installed, you will see a new option to edit the content in markdown.

So here's the deal. The initial conversion from HTML to Markdown is all kinds of jumbled. It's not even usable honestly. This means that it really only works if you leverage this app from the beginning.

I can deal with that, but if you're going to charge me $9/mo you'd better get that fixed.

The next thing, which if this bug got fixed would likely fix some of the "initial jumbling", is that block quotes end up with an $gt; rather than a true > sign when they are converted from HTML to Markdown.

The worst part of it all though is that if I save that, like that, it of course destroys the output because when compiling the Markdown the > becomes literal.

My current usage pattern is to use Atom as my Markdown editor and then copy and paste the entire Markdown into this app so that it will convert it to valid HTML for me for Shopify.

While that alone may be worth $9/mo it's clearly not the ideal or even acceptable interface.
