Markdown Mode for Visual Studio

This is a Visual Studio extension for editing Markdown files. It has a number of features to help users write Markdown files, and was used for writing my blog on MSDN when I worked at Microsoft.

Here is a screenshot: Markdown preview tool window, editing the Markdown Part 2 article

Here are the existing features:

  • Markdown colorization, a classifier built on MarkdownSharp that understands Markdown syntax.
  • Preview tool window, so you can see live updates of what you are typing
  • HTML colorization, for regular HTML elements (that Markdown will just pass through to the output).

Markdown.cs is released under the MIT license, which can be found in that file, as it is a derivative work of MarkdownSharp.

All other source code is released under the Ms-PL license.

Thanks to John Gruber for giving me permission to use the term Markdown in reference to this extension.
