I have hundreds of markdown files in my computer and when I need to study on the metro I export them manually to PDF using Marked and place the resulting files on a Dropbox folder to the open them on my iPod. This would be far easier if a batch convert function were to be introduced in order to export tons of files as PDF, or Automator actions related to markdown files.

    This kind of thing is better done with a script. You can use Pandoc or a
    combination of MultiMarkdown and wkhtml2pdf to generate batches of PDFs
    from folders of Markdown files.

    I want to use Marked to batch import ITMZ and export to whatever.
    Script support in Marked 2 is not adequate.
