Alternatives

  • html2text: Coverts HTML into markdown, and supports a bazillion options. It's a great project if you want to produce markdown; but markdown, because it's designed to be turned into HTML, has a little more noise than is strictly necessary, and the header formatting is pretty unclear.
  • html-to-text: Converts HTML to text. Javascript/node project.
