Confluence to SharePoint Wiki Converter Prototype

Similar to the MovableType to SharePoint Blog Converter that I created, the same client was interested in migrating Confluence Wiki content to SharePoint. Unfortunately, the approach that Confluence uses for Wiki is very different from the approach used by SharePoint. Confluence uses hundreds of proprietary tags to represent a Wiki, while SharePoint uses standard HTML.

To solve this problem, I created a robust tool that was able to read the majority of commonly used Confluence Wiki tags into an object structure that I could convert to HTML that could be used by SharePoint.

While this tool was never ultimately put into production, the early tests of this prototype were extremely successful.
