You can use the builtin Python Markdown parser (offline) or use the GitHub Markdown API (online) or GitLab Markdown API (online) for the conversion.


If you choose the GitHub or GitLab API for conversion (set parser to github or gitlab in your settings), your code will be sent through HTTPS to GitHub or GitLab for live conversion. In case of GitHub, You'll have GitHub Flavored Markdown, syntax highlighting and EMOJI support for free ❤ 🎁. If you make more than 60 calls a day, be sure to set your GitHub API key in the settings 😄.
