Copy as JIRA

Posted by Alex Hayward, Last update about 1 month ago

Converts Markdown to Jira Formatted text

If there is text selected that will be the only part converted and put on the clipboard, otherwise the whole document is convered.

Uses an excerpt from the J2M Library by Fokke Zandbergen, with a few minor improvements.

Github Repository, contributions welcome!
