Marked as a Command Line Processor

Can the Marked application be used from the command line to batch process a markdown file and turn it into an HTML file (while using all of the preferences for the app)? I like your built in processor and generated HTML. I tried some of the custom processors, but all of them have parts that do not process in the same way. You greatly simplify the fenced code and math parts. I know I can open the preview and save it, but I was hoping that I could just skip this middle step and go right to the HTML files for a large set of files. TIA.

    Not yet, but it's planned for the future.

    Still a future plan. In the meantime, it's not terribly difficult to use a processor with a CLI like MultiMarkdown, Discount, Pandoc, Kramdown, or maruku to render the HTML and apply a set stylesheet. Not all the bells and whistles of Marked, but for automated or batch HTML generation it works.
