Convert FreePlane Mind Map to Markdown for import into Roam

# Mind Map to Markdown for Roam import

Got a Mind Map with contents you'd like to import into Roam?

This Python application might do what just you want.

It will take a Freeplane .mm Mind Map file and convert it into Markdown ready for manual import into Roam.

I think Freemind mind maps should also work, but I have not yet tested them.

It's currently in early beta.

## Features

The generated markdown file will have a hierarchy of bullet points that match the branches of the Mind Map.

For each branch that has a description, the text of the description will be appended to the branch title, starting on the line below.

If a branch has a link to a web page a link will be generated in the markdown file.

Rich text is supported in branch titles and descriptions.

## Installation

pip3 install fp2md4roam

## Use

From a command line, run convert_map <path_to_mind_map> <target_directory>

So, if you have a mind map file my_map.mm, and type convert_map my_map.mm foo with a root node called My Smart Mind Map this will create a file called MySmartMindMap.md in the output directory foo.

You can then import the MySmartMap.md into Roam in the usual way.

When Roam imports a Markdown file it will ask you what name you want for the page after import.

Since this application will remove spaces and punctuation for the generated file name you may want to alter the page name before you import it.
