Is there a way I can add fenced code with highlights? If not... Can it be added?

Here's what i'm thinking:


//Some highlighted code here

Does Real-time preview exist yet in the Markdown View?

At present, I find it a requirement to exit the Markdown Editor or leave the editor window for the newly typed text to appear in the Markdown View screen.

The plugin appears to be missing the update as you type feature... or I'm missing how to configure this option.

If it doesn't exist yet, is this a feature that you are considering added?

I'm enjoying using Markdown Editor. I'd like for my DOT code blocks to render too.

Is there any chance you will be adding code block support? And specifically support for calling DOT?
graph a {
A -> B -> C;

YES - I need this too please.

Great plugin!
Unfortunately I can't get the nested list markdown, which is an important function for me...

+ first item
+ second item
+ third item
+ first nested item
+ second nested item
+ third nested item

(the entire nested list appears directly after 'third item', on one line without return)

The Marketplace listing states the license is LGPL:

License: LGPL

however the GitHub repository states it is EPL. Unsure which one is the right one.

Of course sources were right. Is it right for you?

Thanks for fixing the license in the listing.

Mylyn Wikitext ( ) provides another implementation of Markdown support, which I prefer to this one.

Both are available within Enide 2015
Comparing to Mylyn wikitext Markdown Editor has
- separate View for preview: you can edit looking at result
- better Dark theme support (not black text on black background)
- GitHub code blocks
- HtML comments

I've switched from the WikiText Editor to this Markdown editor to get task tag support, but alas it doesn't seem to work or I can't get it to work.

My preferences contain this task tags list: TODO,FIXME,LATER

None of the following show in Eclipse's task list after saving an .md file:
> TODO test 1
TODO test 2
`TODO` test 3

Not sure how to make this work...

The highlight is very poor, even titles are highlighted.

With pull request by Telmo Brugnara the coloring is improved substantially.

I can't install anything from references here,
and home page references other update site that has only 0.2.3

Where is 0.9 ?

Hello Paul,

Thank you for flagging this up.

The versioning changed when ThinkTank Mathematics closed and the project moved to Winterwell.
We'll do a 1.0 release soon to bring it inline with the old numbering.

The correct update site is:
I've updated the marketplace entry as you suggested.

Best regards,
- Daniel

I like this extension for the word wrapping, but I'm not sure of the other formatting features.
