Gitdown is a markdown preprocessor for Github. In essence – it is a tool wrapping a collection of processing utilities used to streamline documentation writing on Github, e.g.
- Generate Table of Contents
- Find dead URLs and Fragment Identifiers
- Include variables
- Include files
- Get file size
- Generate Badges
- Print Date
- Print information about the repository itself
Gitdown is designed to be run using either of the build systems, such as Gulp or Grunt. It seamlessly integrates into your development routine.
