# Docs to Markdown (GD2md-html): Googe Docs add-on

Docs to Markdown (GD2md-html) converts Google Docs to simple, readable Markdown or HTML.

This add-on allows you to create documents using the excellent editing and collaborative features of Google Docs, but publish as Markdown or HTML that you can store as text files using a version-control system. 

See https://github.com/evbacher/gd2md-html/wiki for docs.

Love this. Wish it was secure enough to install on my work g-apps account, but still ace

We tried to minimize the permissions required -- is there some additional security assurance you're looking for?

Really helped in my use case of a Markdown document that was converted to a Google Doc, was modified, and had to be converted back again.

This plugin does code google footnotes, but does not resolve Zotero created links in a GoogleDoc.

This add-on is a great timesaver - it allows our working group to author collaboratively in Google Docs and export to well-structured Markdown for archival purposes. Works very well, and minor issues reported have been fixed promptly. Thanks for writing it!

doesn't work at all. At least in case of reddit, it does not accurately convert the formatting.

I have a really complex google docs document (30,000 words, tons of links, all kinds of headings, 80 complex footnotes (with links, bullet-point lists,... )). And this tool converted everything correctly, even mathematical equations with subscripts in the footnotes. This just saved me so many hours! Thanks!

Thanks for the kind review, Jan. I'm glad to hear the converter worked for you on such a big document. I'm also curious about the mathematical equations, since the converter doesn't really handle equations from Docs -- are they just simple equations done with text?
