Perfect Markdown Previewing

Perfect little markdown previewing app from thoughtbot. Love the auto-refresh on save. Let’s me edit the markdown file in any editor, and refreshes the preview automatically on save.

What a great idea! *sigh*

We were all excited to try this. Won’t open. In the fantasy land of my brain, this app works perfectly and is a real help in visualizing and formatting content. PS. Have Carthage installed so it ain’t that...

Great app

Great app! Simple, but does the job very well. It fits to my everyday workflow. One thing that will be good to add is the Quick Look preview

Love it!

Simple and clean. Very nice stylesheet - the same as newest github’s. However I am missing text auto scrolling when link was clicked.

Wonderful!

This application is a life-saver!

Great little app

Does exactly what I want. Love the auto-refresh on save!

Auto refresh on save

Killer app. Exactly what I wanted. A window with a preview of the markdown. I edit in vim and the window auto-updates on `:w`. Great.

Perfect Markdown previewing

Ive been looking for something like this, glad to see Im not the only one who wants to preview markdown files without having to leave my editor. Works beautifully!

Sweet and simple!

Open a .md file in any editor and open the same file in Markoff. Put the two windows side by side. Edit your markdown and save. Markoff will automatically render your changes. Very nice.

Great app, right to the point

This does exactly what I want: show me the rendered markdown. No more, no less. Couldnt be happier.

Makes me feel a lot better about editing Markdown in Sublime Text

I started with Markdown in Sublime Text. I love Sublime Text for editing in Markdown but never felt satisifed with the packages available for rendering the documents. Too many steps and the auto-refresh after saves didnt work reliably for me. Then I met Markoff. So simple. So delightful. Now my default markdown application is Markoff. When I open a markdown document, its pretty by default. If want to edit the thing, I put my left thumb on the Command key and my right index finger on the E key. BOOM! Sublime Text. Magical. If I save an edit in Sublime Text, then... ANOTHER BOOM! Markoff registers the save and updates the rendering to reflect it. Markoff is watching you while you are using your favorite editor. Dont worry: Its got your back. So, if you primarily use your dedicated Markdown editor to render your Markdown that you write elsewhere, then I think its possible that Markoff is EXACTLY what you need.

Says it Can’t Open .md Files

The whole point of this thing is to render markdown, and it can’t even handle a .md file. What a joke

Won’t open markdown (md) files in High Sierra

The app won’t open markdown (“.md”) files when installed on High Sierra. A bug report filed on github two years ago has yet to receive a response from the anyone on the development team. This app appears to be abandoned.

Flat out does not work, refuses to open md files

When I try to open a markdown file, all .md files are grayed out. In fact, everything that isn't a shell script seems to be grayed out.

Works Well

The program works as advertised and displayed the .md markdown file. My intention is more reading the file versus editing a md file. I’d like to read the file after cloning a github project for instance. The program follows mac ui guidelines and feels mac oriented. No strange cross platform ui which is good. The only issue so far is there is an image reference in a markdown file with a local path ../Docs/images/myimage.png that does not show up. Its like its expecting all images are urls with http:// . The image exists but shows a blank area in the application render. So, it looks like its not handling local files just right yet. Other than the local image loading issue it seems to work pretty good.

Crashes in High Siera

Doesn’t open. Looks like it’s on it’s way to becoming abandonware.

Links don’t work

Links don’t work - can’t go from one MD to another.

Lightweight. Simple. Fast.

It is a no-brainer Markdown previewer. Just write your stuff, save, and the changes are reflected. There is a sensible, thorough, and decidedly single theme built-in. I would be embarrassed to admit how much time I have lost in the past messing around with Markdown preview setups. Pandoc, real-time update, scroll-syncing, endless tweaking of CSS, outputting to PDF, HTML, it really can be too much. I therefore appreciate the simplicity. More writing, less messing around. If you really must tweak the theme, I found you can mess with /Applications/Markoff.app/contents/resources/template/main.css. I doubt this is a ‘supported’ feature, but all the changes I wanted worked fine. Edit main.css, save, quit and reopen Markoff, job done. Be smart, make a backup of the file first and only make a few changes at a time. Don’t bug the dev about this, emkay? Bottom line: Does what it says on the tin. *As of this writing, it does not print but that is not exactly what it is for.

Hangs every time you try to print; requires force quit and restart

Overall, this app is OK. Its output looks decent, and it’s free, which is nice. However, it crashes EVERY TIME I try to print. If I use the File => Print menu item, then I get a modal alert window saying “Printing Not Allowed” and “This application is not allowed to print. Please contact your application vendor for an update.” Then the app hangs and beachballs and locks up and I need to force quit it. Ummm, OKKKK … What am I supposed to do with this? If the app can’t print, then remove the File => Print option from the menu. Or else fix print. But don’t hang everytime I try to print. This severely compromises usability and makes me not want to use this otherwise good app. Please fix ASAP! If you fix printing, I’ll happily update my review to reflect this … Thanks.

Almost perfect

Allow users to switch between different popular markdown styles, and I would rate this app a perfet 5 stars! This app renders code blocks appropriately, whick my previous md previewer did not. I like this app. Its simple and it works. And of course, its from one of my favorite developer companies. Thank you guys.

Wonderful!
