A recent working experience needed me to write doc on Atlassian Confluance documentation product. I will show you how to convert your markdown doc to Confluance version.

Convert markdown or rst to Confluance

Confluance’s web doc editor is very powerfull, but I a markdown guy, I write everything in markdown in pure text mode and versioning it. I need sth. to convert markdown to Confluance.

Checked on the official doc, it says that Confluence supports markdown import, but after a test, not really, at least not for table.

Solution:

Convert the markdown or rst files to a HTML file.

There’re many plugins on the net, I use VSCode editor, I choose the extension Markdown All in One, it has a method called “Markdown: Print current document to HTML”.

Once I get the HTML version, than just past the HTML content into Confluence directly. Done.

Here’s the tutorial on how to insert the HTML marco.

Convert mediawiki to Confluance

Checked on the official doc, it says that Confluence supports wiki import, but I haven’t tested yet.
