Markdown Part 3.5 – v0.1 posted on VS Gallery

This is part of the “Markdown mode” series:

Part 3 – A live tool window previewer
Part 2 – Writing a classifier
Part 1 – Markdown!

I’m in a jolly mood, having just bought a new sofa and chair at IKEA and getting rid of my old one (it was the nastiest piece of furniture in the entire apartment), so I decided to share this feeling of getting something new and shiny. To be clear, though, I am not buying you a sofa at IKEA.

Instead, I’ve posted out an alpha version of Markdown Mode on the vsgallery! Not quite as cool as a new sofa, I know, but I hope you’ll enjoy it anyways.

Here’s another quick screenshot of Markdown Mode version 0.1:

Markdown Mode v0.1

The new color scheme is something Chris Granger wrote; if anyone is interested in it, I’ll forward those requests on to him.

You can also read/download the source on github. At this stage, while I’m still doing fairly active development, there will changes there that I won’t push out to the VS Gallery immediately.

The one thing that I really don’t have a great idea for yet is the icon for Markdown Mode. There doesn’t seem to be an official Markdown icon, and I doubt I’d have the license or talent to modify it for my purposes anyways, so I just stuck with a slightly stylized “mark” – “down” (split over two lines, to accommodate the 32×32 size that the extension manager uses): . I’ve set the screenshot to a 198×198 pixel clip of the screenshot I posted above.

If you get a chance to try it out, let me know on twitter (@noahsmark). I’d love to hear any feedback you may have.

    Any chance of getting the VS Color Scheme? It looks pretty cool.


  2. Yeah, let me ask the guy that wrote that color scheme to put it up someplace, and then I’ll reply back here.
