Greadme

Locally preview your markdown, Github style.

Download .zip Download .tar.gz View on GitHub

Installation

via npm:

$ npm install -g greadme

Usage

$ greadme [path/to/some.markdown]

   view your markdown at http://localhost:8124/
   press CTRL+C to quit

Execute greadme passing an optional path to a markdown file and it will be parsed and served from a locally running http server with Github styling applied. When no file path is specified, greadme displays a file browser of the current directory, similar to Github.

A browser will automatically be opened to preview the markdown if your OS supports it.

Files with the following extensions are rendered.

  • .md
  • .markdown

Notes

An attempt is made to use the Github markdown rendering api and Githubs stylesheets. If the attempt fails we fall back to rendering locally.
