andreas1234567 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

The underlying objective is to use the wiki as a single source for documentation, including presentations with reveal.js or equivalent javascript frameworks that can take markdown as input.

I am aware of approaches like HTML::WikiConverter::Markdown. To convert via html seems unnecessarily complex, when I all need is to convert from mediawiki to markdown.

Update: It seems Pandoc is a good non-perl markup conversion alternative.

No matter how great and destructive your problems may seem now, remember, you've probably only seen the tip of them. [1]
