editor's review





Marko is a markdown viewer that offers you the possibility to quickly see how will your document look when published on the GitHub page. The application constantly monitors the source text document, and automatically reloads when you save your modifications in order to make the editing process a lot faster.

Minimalist software solution for previewing GitHub markdown documents

The Marko user interface is reduced to a single window where you can preview how will the text document look when published on GitHub. Note that Marko does not include any editing options, and does not integrate any customization options.

However, for your convenience, Marko will remember the recently opened documents. To preview a text document in the Marko app, you can either drag and drop it on top of the app’s Dock icon, or you can use the built in Finder menu.

Provides support for GitHub specific markdown features

Marko is designed especially to allow you to preview markdown documents written for the GitHub website. As a result, it will be able to render URL autolinking, fenced code blocks, strikethrough text, and tables. Moreover, it is able to ignore underscores included in words.

Being able to preview how the document will look before actually uploading it to the GiHub servers will save you a lot of time because you will be able to make all the necessary adjustments in real time.

Unsophisticated yet highly useful tool for GitHub developers

To conclude, you can use Marko to preview the markdown documents that you plan to upload to your GitHub project page: the application provides support for most markdown features supported by GitHub, so the result is fairly accurate.

What’s more, Marko automatically refreshes the rendering each time you save a modification made to the source TXT document, which will greatly improve your productivity level.
