Known issues

  • Setext headers are not properly detected
    • First-level Setext headers improperly trigger for some horizontal rules
    • Recommend not using --------- as a horizontal rule, for example; even sticking some spaces in between dashes will stop it from triggering as a header
  • HTML detection is very basic, and doesn't allow for Markdown in inline HTML blocks
  • Espresso crashes sometimes when trying to shorten the URL
