markedj Build Status Maven Central License

JVM port of graceful markdown processor marked.js.


First, add following dependency into your pom.xml:


You can easily use markedj via io.github.gitbucket.markedj.Marked:

import io.github.gitbucket.markedj.*;

String markdown = ...

// With default options
String html1 = Marked.marked(markdown);

// Specify options
Options options = new Options();

String html2 = Marked.marked(markdown, options);


io.github.gitbucket.markedj.Options has following properties to control Markdown conversion:

Name Default Description
gfm true Enable GitHub Flavored Markdown.
tables true Enable GFM tables. This option requires the gfm option to be true.
breaks false Enable GFM line breaks. This option requires the gfm option to be true.
sanitize false Ignore any HTML that has been input.
langPrefix "lang-" Prefix of class attribute of code block
headerPrefix "" Prefix of id attribute of header
whitelist See Whitelist of HTML tags.

By default, markedj uses Jsoup's whitelist mechanism for HTML rendering. It restricts renderable tags, attributes and even protocols of attribute values. For example, the image url must be http:// or https:// by default. You can remove this restriction by customizing the whitelist as follows:

String html1 = Marked.marked("![alt text](/img/some-image.png \"title\")");
  // => <p><img alt=\"alt text\" title=\"title\"></p>

Options options = new Options();
options.getWhitelist().removeProtocols("img", "src", "http", "https");

String html2 = Marked.marked("![alt text](/img/some-image.png \"title\")", options);
  // => <p><img src="/img/some-image.png" alt="alt text" title="title"></p>
