Markdown Here 2.13.2 Requires Restart
Write your email in Markdown, then make it pretty. NOTE: This is the legacy XUL version, for Thunderbird, Postbox, Pale Moon, etc. *Not* for modern Firefox; for that use this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/markdown-here/
About this Add-on
This is great for anyone who doesn't like fiddling around with formatting buttons while writing an email. It's especially good for programmers who write email with code in them -- it even supports syntax highlighting. And for the mathematicians among us: Markdown Here will render TeX formulae as well.
Totally simple to use:
1. Write your email in your email client's rich editor using Github-flavoured Markdown.
2. Right-click in the compose area and then click "Markdown Toggle".
3. Your email is now pretty! (That is, it's been rendered to HTML.)
4. If you like the way it looks, just send it. If you want to change or add something, click "Markdown Toggle" again to get back to your original Markdown.
5. Repeat as necessary.
Markdown Here is primarily targeted to work with Gmail and Thunderbird, but it also works pretty well with Yahoo and Hotmail. Additionally, it works great with Google Groups and Sites, Evernote's web interface, Blogger, Wordpress, and more!
Syntax highlighting note: Use fenced code blocks and specify the language name. See the project page for an example.
Privacy: Markdown Here accesses and modifies web content when you activate it. It can, in theory, access other web content, but does not. It also makes no Internet requests whatsoever. Your data is modified when and where you choose, and does not leave your browser.
Available as a Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Thunderbird extension.
This is an open source project. Visit Markdown Here's Github page for full instructions, more information, bug reports, or to contribute.
- Converted the Firefox version of Markdown Here to use the WebExtensions API. This makes MDH compatible with Firefox's new multiprocess architecture (aka Electrolysis). If you have an older version of MDH installed in Firefox, there will soon be a new release of that version which prompts you to install the new WebExtensions version.
- The upgrade for existing Firefox users is a little rocky because the XUL version needs to continue to exist for Thunderbird (and Postbox) users. So the WebExtensions version has to fork.
- The Firefox and Chrome code bases are now almost identical, so that's good.
- Fixed bug# 369: Clicking Markdown Here's "Options" button in Firefox and Thunderbird (version 48+) causes the client application to hang. (Note that this only applies to the XUL version of the extension.)
- Updated jQuery to 3.2.1. This was required to pass Mozilla review.
- Wondering why there hasn't been a release in a while? My son was born a month after the last release. This is not a coincidence. You guys, having a kid is a lot of work.
