Markdown is a plain text format for writing structured documents. CommonMark, is a strongly defined, highly compatible specification of Markdown, along with a suite of comprehensive tests to validate implementations.
This site is for
- suggesting improvements to the spec and embedded tests, and the reference implementations.
- sharing information on CommonMark implementations in any programming language
We believe a complete, unambiguous CommonMark specification will promote adoption of Markdown and ensure that Markdown documents continue to render reliably in the future on every platform.

With the lion’s share of the spec and implementation by John.
