I had some HTML content that I wanted to convert to markdown.

The simplest tool I found to do this effectively was a python utility called Markdownify.

I used Nix Shell to install it:

nix-shell -p python311Packages.markdownify

And to do the conversion I just did:

markdownify myfile.html >

where myfile.html is the name of the file I wanted to convert and in the name of the markdown file it got converted to.
