vim-markdown-composer

vim-markdown-composer is a plugin that adds asynchronous Markdown preview to Neovim and Vim.

By default, vim-markdown-composer uses a blazing-fast CommonMark (and GitHub)-compliant renderer. However, it can be configured to use any external program for rendering, such as

pandoc
.

Requirements

This plugin requires Neovim or Vim 8. If you are using an OS with Vim pre-installed, the system Vim might be too old (see

vim --version
).

This plugin supports Windows, macOS, and Linux.

In addition to Neovim or Vim, vim-markdown-composer requires a distribution of Rust with

cargo
. Check out the Rust installation guide.

vim-markdown-composer officially targets the latest version of stable Rust.

Installation

Use whatever plugin manager you like. If you aren't familiar with plugin managers, I recommend vim-plug.

vim-plug

Here's an example of managing installation with vim-plug:

function! BuildComposer(info)
  if a:info.status != 'unchanged' || a:info.force
    if has('nvim')
      !cargo build --release --locked
    else
      !cargo build --release --locked --no-default-features --features json-rpc
    endif
  endif
endfunction

Plug 'euclio/vim-markdown-composer', { 'do': function('BuildComposer') }

Vundle

In your

.vimrc
:
Plugin 'euclio/vim-markdown-composer'

Once you have installed the plugin, close Vim/Neovim then (on Linux):

$ cd ~/.vim/bundle/vim-markdown-composer/
# Vim
$ cargo build --release --no-default-features --features json-rpc
# Neovim
$ cargo build --release

Dein.vim

call dein#add('euclio/vim-markdown-composer', { 'build': 'cargo build --release' })

Other plugin managers

You should run

cargo build --release
in the plugin directory after installation. Vim support requires the
json-rpc
cargo feature.

If you use the above snippet, everything should be taken care of automatically.

Plugin Options

By default,

vim-markdown-composer
will open a new browser tab with the rendered preview. This can be prevented by setting the following in your Vim configuration:
let g:markdown_composer_autostart = 0

Documentation

:help markdown-composer
, or check out the
doc
directory.

This plugin was built with aurelius, a Rust library for live-updating Markdown previews.
