Markdown Mindmap package

Type mind in the Atom command palette to open a mindmap view of the current markdown file. The full command name is Markdown Mindmap: Toggle.

By default there is no keyboard shortcut to avoid conflicts. If you want to use one open menu Edit -> Keymap... and add this to the file:

  'ctrl-alt-m': 'markdown-mindmap:toggle'
