Would be awesome if there were support for this as well...

    RST is a unique problem. Marked can run external processors easily with preference settings, but I have not seen any RST processors which can output the snippet HTML (not full HTML documents) that Marked needs to be able to render a custom preview. The Python Docutils package is a potential renderer, but has no ability to render snippets. You could play with using its function and see what kind of results you get, but it links or embeds its own stylesheet, as far as I can tell. If you know of another processor that can handle snippet output, I'd be happy to post instructions for using it as a custom processor.

    I would also appreciate reST support, course I write a lot of python stuff and reST is the de facto standart for python documentation.

    Just bumping this up since it hasn't been altered in 6 years. Basically, I'd be very interested in moving to rst instead of md.

    BTW, I did try the instructions at without success.

    I have no plans to add native support for reST. The custom processor system was designed for this, though the old knowledgebase article may need updating.
