Item content format

The Nuclino API exposes item content as Markdown. It adheres to the CommonMark spec and uses GFM extensions to add support for task lists and simple tables. Additionally, it uses HTML comments to add metadata that is specific to Nuclino. Inline nodes like internal links, mentions, and file uploads are represented as Markdown links and are recognized based on their URL.

Example of Nuclino item content formatted as Markdown:

# Large heading
## Medium heading
### Small heading
---
- List item 1
- Nested list item
- List item 2
1. Ordered list item 1
1. Nested ordered list item
2. Ordered list item 2
- [ ] Task item
- [ ] Nested task item
- [x] Task item checked
# Inline nodes
Simple paragraph with *emphasized* and **bold** text.
Inline `code` can also be used. And they can be ***`combined`***.
Text ==highlights== are also supported.

Current limitations

  • Tables that contain cells with multiple lines use the grid table format. The Nuclino API currently only supports exporting such tables, but does not support importing them.
