Markdig is a fast, powerful, CommonMark compliant, extensible Markdown processor for .NET.

NOTE: The repository is under construction. There will be a dedicated website and proper documentation at some point!

You can try Markdig online and compare it to other implementations on babelmark3


If you are looking for support for an old .NET Framework 3.5 or 4.0, you can download Markdig 0.18.3.

Third Party Extensions


The repository is under construction. There will be a dedicated website and proper documentation at some point!

While there is not yet a dedicated documentation, you can find from the specs documentation how to use these extensions.

In the meantime, you can have a "behind the scene" article about Markdig in my blog post "Implementing a Markdown Engine for .NET"


Markdig is available as a NuGet package: NuGet

Also Markdig.Signed NuGet package provides signed assemblies.


The main entry point for the API is the Markdig.Markdown class:

By default, without any options, Markdig is using the plain CommonMark parser:

var result = Markdown.ToHtml("This is a text with some *emphasis*");
Console.WriteLine(result);   // prints: <p>This is a text with some <em>emphasis</em></p>

In order to activate most of all advanced extensions (except Emoji, SoftLine as HardLine, Bootstrap, YAML Front Matter, JiraLinks and SmartyPants)

// Configure the pipeline with all advanced extensions active
var pipeline = new MarkdownPipelineBuilder().UseAdvancedExtensions().Build();
var result = Markdown.ToHtml("This is a text with some *emphasis*", pipeline);

Try it online!

You can have a look at the MarkdownExtensions that describes all actionable extensions (by modifying the MarkdownPipeline)


Contributions are what make the open source community such an amazing place to learn, inspire, and create. Any contributions you make are greatly appreciated. For detailed contributing guidelines, please see

The latest benchmark was collected on April 23 2022, against the following implementations:

  • Markdig (version: 0.30.2): itself
  • cmark (version: 0.30.2): Reference C implementation of CommonMark, no support for extensions
  • CommonMark.NET(master) (version: 0.15.1): CommonMark implementation for .NET, no support for extensions, port of cmark, deprecated.
  • MarkdownSharp (version: 2.0.5): Open source C# implementation of Markdown processor, as featured previously on Stack Overflow, regexp based.

Thanks to the fantastic work done by John Mac Farlane for the CommonMark specs and all the people involved in making Markdown a better standard!

This project would not have been possible without this huge foundation.

Thanks also to the project BenchmarkDotNet that makes benchmarking so easy to setup!

Some decoding part (e.g HTML EntityHelper.cs) have been re-used from CommonMark.NET

Thanks to the work done by @clarkd on the JIRA Link extension (, now included with this project!
