CommonMark is an attempt to standardize Markdown


To quote Markdown

From 2012, a group of people including Jeff Atwood and John MacFarlane launched what Atwood characterized as a standardization effort.[1] A community website now aims to "document various tools and resources available to document authors and developers, as well as implementors of the various markdown implementations".[2] In September 2014, Gruber objected to the usage of "Markdown" in the name of this effort and it was rebranded as a new dialect named CommonMark.[3][4] published several versions of a specification, reference implementation, and test suite, and "[plans] to announce a finalized 1.0 spec and test suite in 2019."[5]
