An attempt to escape the horrible JIRA editor. is a pandoc filter that cleans up some of JIRA’s html so that it can be converted to Markdown without too much loss. This is work in progress!

This repo also contains script a2md that enables a somewhat crappy workflow:

  1. Copy comment or issue text in JIRA (Ctrl+C)
  2. Run a2md. This re-populates your clipboard with the contents converted to Markdown.
  3. Paste to your favorite editor and edit
  4. Copy&paste markdown back to JIRA
  5. ?
