Markdown All The Things

By now I know most of the basic markdown syntax by heart.

Still, in most cases, I wanna take a look at the preview before pushing a GitHub Especially if a cool ASCII art is included ;)

Today I Learned about markdown-live, a useful node package that fires up a new browser tab with the preview of your markdown file.

To make it even more awesome, it watches for changes in the file and updates the preview on save!


  • watch markdown files in the current directory

    $ mdlive
  • watch a specific file

    $ mdlive -f <file-name>

markdown all the things


$ npm install -g markdown-live
