Project Description

Simple markdown viewer inspired by restview.


  • Support for different markdown flavors (such as markdown-extra).
  • Auto-reload in browser when previewed file is modified.
  • Syntax highlighting using Pygments.


To install mdview, use pip:

pip install mdview


usage: mdview [-h] [-x EXTENSIONS] [--version] [--debug] filename

Simple markdown viewer.

positional arguments:

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -x EXTENSIONS, --extensions EXTENSIONS
                        markdown extensions separated by commas. Default:
  --version             show program's version number and exit
  --debug               run server in debug mode


Where can I find a list of supported markdown extensions?

List of supported flavors is available in python-markdown’s documentation. By default the extra and codehilite extensions are turned on.

How can I run mdview without any extension?

$ mdview --extensions "" path/to/

What are those error: [Errno 32] Broken pipe errors I see on stderr?

It happens when you close the browser and mdview still tries to send to it information. You can safely ignore this.
