How to escape text for markdown formatting


If you work with the Markdown markup language, it's only a matter of time before you need to escape the markdown formatting characters. For instance, pasting source code into Trello cards requires the text to be escaped or else certain characters of the source code will be interpreted as markdown.

I made a quick website on Glitch in order to solve this problem, and I thought someone else might find it useful. This conversion will show escaped and blockquote escaped text. The conversion runs in your browser - no data is transmitted to any web server or third-party entity.
