Replicate GitHub Flavored Markdown with Tailwind CSS components

🔩 Usage

To use, include the provided style sheet (markdown.css) and add the markdown class to any element that you wish to render as Github Flavored Markdown (GFM).


<!-- Rendered in default Tailwind style -->

<!-- Rendered in GFM style -->
<h1 class="markdown">Header</h1>

favicon-32x32 Working with Hugo

You can use this style sheet to style your generated Hugo content. To do so, wrap your content with an element that contains the markdown class.


<div class="markdown">
  {{ .Content }}

🕊️ Nesting

For those of you who wish to have the class rules nested I have provided a simple python script ( to generate a style sheet with nesting (markdown-nested.css). The nesting script just applies a very simple reformatting.

📖 References

The idea to use the @apply directive to create rules for a Markdown class was concieved by @adamwathan (the creator of Tailwind CSS). He first publicized this idea in a comment on an issue in the Tailwind CSS discussion repository.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
