markdowner

A markdown viewer/reader and editor written with Python GTK.

Installation

git clone git://github.com/aviddiviner/markdowner

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://github.com/waylan/Python-Markdown.git
cd Python-Markdown/
sudo python setup.py install

(See http://www.freewisdom.org/projects/python-markdown/ 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/markdowner.py /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 README.md file and choose:

Properties > Open With > Add > Custom Command > markdowner
