Using Textile with Marked
A few people have asked how to get Textile working in Marked. You need to have a Textile converter available from the command line. There are a few options, including Pandoc, but the two easiest I've found are RedCloth for Ruby and Textile for Perl (requires that the Developer Tools be installed). Install one or the other:
- Install Textile from https://github.com/bradchoate/text-textile
sudo gem install RedClothin Terminal.
- Set your preferences like below for the Perl version. Use
Note: your install paths may differ. You can
determine the correct path using
which textile or
which redcloth in the Terminal.
Now Marked is a Textile previewer for you!
If you have trouble with UTF8 characters in your Textile document when using the Perl version, see this gist and edit the /usr/local/bin/textile command, replacing its text with the raw contents of the gist.
