How to convert a string with markdown to a string with plain text?


Jan 06 2020 at 07:38 GMT

I have some markdown that I want to convert to plain text.

For example,

const markdown = 'Markdown **is** _great_. `But` I want\n```\nplain text\n```'

// Should output:
// Markdown is great. But I want
// plain text

What npm package can I use to accomplish that?

There's an npm package called remove-markdown that you can use to do the markdown to plain text conversion.

npm install remove-markdown

Here's how to use it:

const removeMd = require('remove-markdown')

const markdown = 'Markdown **is** _great_. `But` I want\n```\nplain text\n```\n'

const plainText = removeMd(markdown)
// Output:
// Markdown is great. But I want
// plain text
