How to Convert Markdown (.md file) to HTML using JavaScript

Markdown is extremely simple and easy to use, but it still needs to be transitioned to HTML, which often requires downloading a new application entirely. Our Markdown to HTML API lets you make that transition in an instant, so you can put your web syntax conversion needs to rest. We’ve included ready-to-run code examples in JavaScript to help you structure you API call; all you’ll need beyond that is a Cloudmersive API key, which you can easily obtain by creating a free account on our website.

To start, let’s install the jQuery library using a simple command:

bower install jquery

Next, let’s include a code snippet to capture our Markdown (.md) file:

var form = new FormData();
form.append("inputFile", fileInput.files[0], "file");

Now it’s smooth sailing — just copy the below code block and include your API key where indicated:

var form = new FormData();
form.append("inputFile", fileInput.files[0], "file");
var settings = {
"url": "https://api.cloudmersive.com/convert/web/md/to/html",
"method": "POST",
"timeout": 0,
"headers": {
"Content-Type": "multipart/form-data",
"Apikey": "YOUR-API-KEY-HERE"
},
"processData": false,
"mimeType": "multipart/form-data",
"contentType": false,
"data": form
};
$.ajax(settings).done(function (response) {
console.log(response);
});
