Now, let’s explore some details of above stated code snippet.

HtmlApi htmlApi = new HtmlApi(clientID, clientSecret);

Firstly, create an instance of HtmlApi class where we pass the client credentials as arguments.

AsposeResponse response = htmlApi.PutConvertDocumentToMarkdown(inputFileName,newFileName);

Call the API to initiate the HTML to Markdown conversion operation. After successful operation, the resultant MD file is stored in cloud storage.

Convert HTML to Markdown using cURL Commands

Harness the combined prowess of Aspose.HTML Cloud and cURL commands to streamline the conversion from HTML to Markdown (MD) format. By crafting a cURL command that interacts with the Aspose.HTML Cloud API, you initiate a seamless transition from HTML to Markdown. This method also allows you to retain content structure and formatting, ensuring that your converted documents maintain readability and presentation quality.

Now, with this approach, the first step is to generate a JWT access token by executing the following command.

curl -v "" \
 -X POST \
 -d "grant_type=client_credentials&client_id=bb959721-5780-4be6-be35-ff5c3a6aa4a2&client_secret=4d84d5f6584160cbd91dba1fe145db14" \
 -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" \
 -H "Accept: application/json"

Now that we have a JWT access token, please execute the following command to load the input HTML from cloud storage, convert it to Markdown (MD) format and save the resultant file on local drive.

curl -v "{inputHTML}/convert/md?outPath={resultantFile}&useGit=false" \
-X PUT \
-H  "accept: application/json" \
-H  "authorization: Bearer {accessToken}" \
-d {}

Replace inputHTML with the name of input HTML file already available in cloud storage, resultantFile with the name of resultant Markdown file available, and accessToken with JWT access token generated above.


In conclusion, the conversion from HTML to Markdown (MD) format marks a pivotal step toward enhancing content compatibility, readability, and sharing across diverse platforms. With two dynamic approaches at your disposal, the Aspose.HTML Cloud SDK for .NET and the utilization of cURL commands, you have the flexibility to choose the method that aligns with your technical expertise and requirements. Nonetheless, leveraging the Aspose.HTML Cloud empowers you to execute ‘html to markdown’ conversions with precision, preserving content integrity seamlessly.
