Sublime Text 2/3 Markdown Preview

Preview and build your markdown files quickly in your web browser from sublime text 2/3.

You can use builtin python-markdown parser or use the github markdown API for the conversion.

NOTE: If you choose the GitHub API for conversion (set parser: github in your settings), your code will be sent through https to github for live conversion. You'll have Github flavored markdown, syntax highlighting and EMOJI support for free :heart::octocat::gift:. If you make more than 60 calls a day, be sure to set your GitHub API key in the settings :)

LINUX users: If you want to use GitHub API for conversion, you'll need to have a custom Python install that includes python-ssl as its not built in the Sublime Text 2 Linux package. see @dusteye comment. If you use a custom window manager, also be sure to set a BROWSER environment variable. see @PPvG comments

Features :

  • Markdown preview using the Python-markdown or the Github API just choose select the build commands.
  • Build markdown file using Sublime Text build system. The build parser are config via the "parser" config.
  • Browser preview auto reload on save if you have the ST2 LiveReload plugin installed.
  • Builtin parser : supports abbr, attr_list, def_list, fenced_code, footnotes, tables, smart_strong and toc markdown extensions.
  • CSS search path for local and build-in CSS files (always enabled) and/or CSS overriding if you need
  • YAML support thanks to @tommi
  • Clipboard selection and copy to clipboard thanks to @hexatrope
  • MathJax support : \(\frac{\pi}{2}\) thanks to @bps10
  • HTML template customisation thanks to @hozaka
