QLCommonMark is a QuickLook generator for CommonMark and Markdown files. It uses cmark to render the text, and Bootstrap to style it.


Download QLCommonMark.qlgenerator and copy it to your ~/Library/QuickLook or /Library/QuickLook folder. If the plugin is not picked up immediately, you may need to run qlmanage -r from the Terminal.


If you have Homebrew-Cask installed, you can install QLCommonMark with the following

$ brew update

$ brew cask install qlcommonmark

and uninstall using

$ brew cask uninstall qlcommonmark


This project was inspired by:
