I had to write lots of API documentation in markdown once. Existed viewers were either lacking features or additional prerequisites setup was required, where I wanted a simple command to start working, considering multiple working places. So I started on
- on save/idle preview update
- scroll sync
- remote preview
- multiple simultaneous previews
markdown-preview-mode- start mode and open preview window.
markdown-preview-open-browser- open priview window for current buffer.
markdown-preview-cleanup- cleanup running processes (close websocket and http servers).
customize-option markdown-command- change markdown processor.
customize-optionbrowse-url-browser-function - select different browser.
customize-option markdown-preview-host- change http/websocket server address.
customize-option markdown-preview-ws-port- change websocket server port.
customize-option markdown-preview-http-port- change http server port.
