Add an "Export to Asciidoctor" in markdown-centric apps

jmfayard
Facts 1: Asciidoctor is much better than Markdown

Fact 2: Markdown has right now much better tools than Asciidoctor

That includes editors like

- Typora
- Draft
- MacDown
- Stackedit
- Notion
- Ghostwriter
- Dimer
- Quiver

See https://www.shopify.com/partners/blog/10-of-the-best-markdown-editors

I have asked some of those editors to support asciidoctors.

But obviously from their perspective, doubling the amount of work for a fraction more users is not really attractive.

So I was thinking that a good trojan horse for spreading asciidoctor would be

Ask them to add an option: Export to Asciidoctor

What do you think?

And how would you recommend them to do it?
Pandoc? something else?
