go-term-markdown is a go package implementing a Markdown renderer for the terminal.

Note: Markdown being originally designed to render as HTML, rendering in a terminal is occasionally challenging and some adaptation had to be made.

Features:

  • formatting
  • lists
  • tables
  • images
  • code blocks with syntax highlighting
  • basic HTML support

Note: this renderer is packaged as a standalone terminal viewer at https://github.com/MichaelMure/mdr/

Usage

import (
	"fmt"
	"io/ioutil"

	markdown "github.com/MichaelMure/go-term-markdown"
)

func main() {
	path := "Readme.md"
	source, err := ioutil.ReadFile(path)
	if err != nil {
		panic(err)
	}

	result := markdown.Render(string(source), 80, 6)

	fmt.Println(result)
}
