This is not a canonical Markdown version. This variant contains several differences:

  1. One line break will result in a <br /> tag - just like in Github Markdown.
  2. Underscores (_) in the middle of the word won't add italics or bold stylings.
  3. Grave character (~ also known as tilde) will result in <s> tag usually used to add line-through or strike-through styling.
  4. Double grave character will result in <del> tag wrapping.


Add following require to your composer.json file:

	// For Laravel 4.1.x+
	"cohensive/markdown": "dev-master"
	// OR for Laravel 4.0.x
	"cohensive/markdown": "4.0.0"

Then run composer install or composer update to download it and autoload.

In providers array you need to add new package:

'providers' => array(



In aliases:

'aliases' => array(

	'Markdown' => 'Cohensive\Markdown\Facades\Markdown'


And after all that, we need to add config file, containing several options for Markdown.

	php artisan config:publish cohensive/markdown


	Markdown::transform('Hello **World**');

Laravel 5

This package won't be supporting Laravel 5 version. Use CommonMark.
