The preview link in Gollum opens a separate page (when the Ace editor isn't in use). But if you notice on GitHub pull requests, issue reports, etc, the preview is an Ajax-ified tab. Adding that in place preview to Gollum would make for a much more awesome editing experience.

I agree that'd be an improvement. As with most of the nice features on GitHub, AJAX preview is not open source. Someone would have to reimplement the functionality.

I'd happily merge a pull request.


Yup, I'd second that this would definitely be an awesome feature =).

@bootstraponline From your comment, this isn't an easy thing to re-implement - is that right?

I think it would be easy. I just haven't had much time. We now have a bunch more maintainers (#648) so chances are better that someone may implement this feature.

@victorhooi I know it's been a while, but would you be interested in trying a pull request for this feature?

The idea now would be to integrate a livepreview pane in the normal editor, as discussed in #826.

just curious if this feature is completely dead in favor of the live preview with ace. I'm actually a big fan of the preview tab with the simple/default editor.

assuming there's room for both live preview and preview tab functionality I'd be willing to look into implementing this.

By the way, @rtrvrtg's branch here is a more clean implementation of the ajax preview pane (without my attempts to use ace in the default editor).

Same here; I'm in favor a preview tab. 👍
