Mac Osx Markdown Preview

Enable Markdown preview in MacOs

One thing that has been annoying me lately is the lack of file preview for Markdown files in MacOs.

There is an open source project, qlmarkdown that brings d to QuickLook,

Get the binaries here, the latest release is 1.3. Expand the zip archive, and copy QLMarkdown.qlgenerator to ~/Library/QuickLook- which you might have to make.

That's it.

Nerd alert

If you want to edit some settings, you can control click the QLMarkdown.qlgenerator and choose Show Package Contents. Inside /Contents/Resources you can modify the style.css, modifing the file seems enought to have the changes effective.
