git clone git://

You'll need Python installed. My system came bundled with v2.6.5, but if you don't have it, a quick sudo apt-get install python or similar should fix things.

After that, you'll need to install the markdown library. I did this as follows:

git clone git://
cd Python-Markdown/
sudo python install

(See for more info.)

Create a Symlink

You may now want to create a symlink in your bin folder or something similar:

sudo ln -s /path/to/your/ /usr/local/bin/markdowner

Once you've done this, you can edit files by typing in your console markdowner <filename>

Associate Files in Nautilus

This is also easy. Right click on a markdown file, such as this file and choose:

Properties > Open With > Add > Custom Command > markdowner


This is based off a script I found at so thanks go out to him for the base of this.
