Node.js - sky-tumblr-export

Export your Tumblr blog to Markdown.

Why?

I'm tired of using Tumblr. Well, actually I haven't used Tumblr since 2011. But I wanted the blog posts in Markdown so that I could use a static blog generator. I ultimately wrote my own static blog generator, sky. But you can use this to dump your Tumblr blog and use any Markdown static blog generator that you like.
