Workflow suggestion for proofing Markdown files in Workfront?


Level 1

The developer for our new WordPress site is requesting that we submitt a large portion of our new text content formatted in Markdown. Unforunately, Workfront proofing does not accept .md files and I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a workflow to support reviewing and approving the Markdown content in Workfront?

Interesting Rayma,

I am intrigued, and am investigating. If I make any progress with the latter, I'll let you know.



Back again (aready) Rayma,

Although what I really meant by investigating was "investigating a way to upload Markdown files into have them render (usefully) in ProofHQ", what I inadvertently discovered was this workaround, in case it is Good Enough For Now for you:

  • copy the entire contents of a given Markdown file
  • navigate to
  • paste those contents, convert them to HTML, then copy the resulting HTML
  • paste that HTML content into a new file and save it as an HTML file; optionally including the original Markdown file's contents as text (e.g. at the end, as text, by convention)
  • upload the HTML file into ProofHQ as a "proxy" for the Markdown file
