Sometimes you want to read a Markdown document without having to render it to HTML and open a browser. ConsoleRenderer allows you to render a Markdown document and read it right from the command line.

ConsoleRenderer is available:

As an executable

console_renderer [markdown doc]
echo '#hello' | console_renderer
cat [markdown doc] | console_renderer


console_renderer example

As a gem

require 'redcarpet'
require 'console_renderer'
m =
puts m.render("# Title \n para")


gem install console_renderer
