Embed .md file from Github in Confluence page?

Hi everyone,

Do you know if there's a simple way to grab an .md file from a page in Github (i.e., a README file), and then embed it on a Confluence page? I am hoping for a plugin and a macro that would let me achieve this. (The closest thing I saw pertaining to a Git macro was described at https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/160993/confluence-git-plugin.) I'm assuming there's nothing like this out there, but I figured I would double check.

You can use Markdown for Confluence's Markdown-url macro with url that points to the GIT raw file.

I tried embedding the git raw file ulr using an iframe inside an html macro but that shows as empty...  should I expect the Markdown-url macro so succeed in such cases?

Thanks, Bob. I installed the trial version, and it works! Very cool.

Hi Richard, our plugin Markdown Render Macro for Confluence supports this feature as well. Cheers!
