With github markdown if you wrap a line in ~~ it will strike it out like:

But markedapp isn't doing that. Would you be able to add this in?

Many thanks!

    Github uses MultiMarkdown, there's no support for strikeout. The next version has the option to use Discount, but switching has some consequences. You're best off using a custom processor that matches Github's GFM syntax.

    Sorry, I thought Docter had that covered. I can't find a processor that supports strikethrough in that format, I'm afraid. You can always use HTML instead, and it will work in Marked and on Github.
