QuickLook for Markdown!

01 February 2017

It’s annoying that my Mac can quicklook normal text documents or even js files but I can’t quicklook markdown files. Seems counterintuitive.

Ah, but you can! Check out qlmarkdown on GitHub. It’s a plugin that renders markdown docs in quicklook. Not heavily supported but the author has made some tweaks to keep it running and it seems to work fine in MacOS Sierra.

Just find the latest version on the releases page and follow the installation instructions.
