FAQ

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/file.md

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.
