Markdown Text-Editor plugin for Eclipse
Markdown Editor plugin for Eclipse
Download site: http://winterwell.com/software/updatesite/
To install, use Eclipse's Software Updates mechanism with the above URL. If you're on Eclipse 3.5, you have to deactivate "Group items by category" in Help > Install New Software - otherwise Eclipse gets upset.
Alternatively, you can download the required files - which are just plugins/thinktank.markdown_XXX.jar and features/thinktank.markdown.feature_XXX.jar - and copy them into the plugins and features directories in your Eclipse installation.
SetupOnce installed, the plugin provides you with a new editor for .md files. You will probably also want to set it as the editor for .txt files. To do this, go to Preferences->Editor->File Associations. Select the file type "*.txt" and add the Markdown Editor as the default editor. You can also use it for other files by right-clicking on the file and going through the "open with" sub menu.
- Document outline. A fantastic feature that lets you see, navigate and edit the structure of text documents.
- Markdown syntax highlighting
- Export to html. This is accessed via the File menu.
- Preview window. Accessed via Window->Show view->other->Markdown
The source code is hosted on github: Eclipse-Markdown-Editor-Plugin. You can fork it, or (better) ask for write access.
The Java source code is also included in the download.
