Workflowy Integration

Hi Everyone,

I am using [Workflowy]( almost for everything. And I'm writing text in Markdown by default everywhere. Unfortunately, they do not support Markdown but I'm wondering if anybody has an idea how to use Marked to get a Markdown Preview of the notes or a page. I can use Clipboard Preview but is there any better way, like previewing a web address, because I might be able to get the text output from URL which then could be used for live preview.
I also heard about Streaming Preview. Is that something that I could use.

Ps. Workflowy doesn't have any native app.

Thanks in advance,

    Streaming preview requires a native app with direct integration, so that
    won't be much help. If you can pull text from a web url or API, you
    could create an external script to write it to a file and open that file
    in Marked. Marked's polling features would only detect file changes when
    your script writes to the file, so it would have to continually poll the
    url for changes to get any kind of "live" preview.
