How It Works

The html-to-markdown is the Convert API endpoint responsible for handling HTML to Markdown conversions. Using a conversion endpoint, you communicate your intent to the API, and now it knows which conversion process to initiate and execute. Let’s consider how it typically works:

The html-to-markdown endpoint has a specific URL that you send your HTTP POST requests to initiate an HTML to Markdown conversion. The URL: /html/convert/html-to-markdown.

To convert HTML to Markdown, you need to upload an HTML file - specify a URL where the HTML file is hosted and specify conversion options to customize the process. If no options are specified, the conversion will proceed with the default options. In this case, the resulting Markdown document will have a width and height corresponding to A4 size, and all margins will be set to zero.

Once the Convert API receives your request, it starts the conversion process. It parses the HTML file and converts it into Markdown format based on the specified conversion options.

After the conversion is complete, the Convert API sends back an HTTP response to your request that includes a downloadable link to the converted Markdown file.
