This package is not maintained anymore. PlainNotes has much better support for markdown and much more.


Github flavored Markdown for SublimeText and a custom color-scheme for writing markdown.


  • Support for fenced code blocks
  • Syntax highlighting support for most popular languages (see below for the list of supported languages)
  • Syntax highlighting for URLs in text which is auto-linked by GFM
  • Proper syntax highlighting for bullets and numbers in ordered/unordered lists
  • Proper syntax highlighting for bold and italics by ignoring multiple underscores in words



To install this plugin, you have two options:

  1. If you have Package Control installed, simply search for Knockdown to install.
  2. Clone source code to Sublime Text packages folder.

Note: after installing this package, open a markdow file and switch the language to Markdown (Github Flavored) from the list of supported languages in your status bar at the bottom right corner of your editor.

Note: if you do not like the settings (including the used color scheme), which are provided with this packages, please go to Preferences -> Package Settings -> Knockdown and click on Settings - User. Repeat that for Settings - Default, copy all the settings to the user settings file and edit those you don't like.
