Serve your markdown files from an http server to see them render as you edit.

Project description


Simply run a web server from the command line that will render your markdown files as html live.


pip install markdown-live should work. It's compatible with python 2.7, and python 3.4+.


Installing markdown-live will install the markdown_live executable, which can be used as such:

usage: markdown_live [-h] [-p PORT] [-v] [LOCATION]

Render markdown files and serve them with an http server.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -p PORT, --port PORT  Serve on this port instead of the default (port 8000)
  -v, --version         Just print out the version number
  LOCATION              either a markdown file to just render that
                        file, or a directory to server files from that


The package is currenly available on pypi here.
