Maaaan, this is amazing! Seems that there is literally everything in the right place.

I just started to build a node script, that will parse markdown to HTML. Then I can send the markdown via the API to dev.to and HTML to webflow (which is accepts with HTML, I found out). But I have to find the right parser first and there are many other cornerstones on the way too :)

Hence, I'm very curious about how you've achieved that result!

Here is a good news for you. DEV supports markdown and you can write raw HTML in markdown. That means you can even write HTML in DEV and it will work perfectly.

nice catch!!! This will be a great way to migrate my existing postsπŸš€πŸš€

I'll still build the automation pipeline for future articles since this will be not only very convenient but also the only way to have code highlighting optimized on all the platforms...

My fellow DEV, if you ever need anything, let me know ;)

interesting fact: if someone wants to cross post on codementor.io, they also support markdown, but they rather use a simple parser, which does not recognize raw HTML...

dev.to rocks! 🀟
