MultiMarkdown to HTML Conversion

Hello. I wanted to broach you with a question that I posted in the Keyboard Maestro forum. Here is the question I posted there:
I produce a MultiMarkdown (MMD) text file in KM. Now I would like to convert it to HTML. Has anyone done this already in a simple fashion?

Source URL:

My ultimate goal is to post this MMD document to a tumblr blog. They have Markdown support only, not MMD. That said, I need to convert this from MMD to HTML.

Please let me know if I can clarify. Feel free to post in the Yahoo group, if you are a member of that forum.

    I’m not sure I follow. The whole point of MultiMarkdown is to convert text to HTML (and other formats).

    When you run a text file through multimarkdown, it becomes HTML.

    Perhaps you could clarify what you mean?

    Thank you for the prompt reply.

    I am searching for a non-interactive (non-GUI) means to process a snippet of MMD text.

    Using automation provided in Keyboard Maestro (KM), I intend to generate MMD plain text and save that text out to a file, or just process a snippet of text in memory into HTML. The means in which I do that is what I am asking about?

    Does MMD Composer have an AppleScript Dictionary? Does MMD Composer have a command-line interface (CLI)?

    If I cannot use MMD Composer in a non-interactive fashion, are there other solutions you might have used?

    Let me know if I can clarify, further.

    MultiMarkdown Composer is the OS X GUI text editor.

    MultiMarkdown is a command line utility and the syntax.
