Markdown [Snippet] Simple and easy beautiful markdown output

Everybody like markdown, it’s easy and beautiful. But the output of markdown syntax just plain html, how to make it better?

Yeah, that is my question. I don’t want to install anything beside markdown. So it’s back to basic.

Here is the step (do it in your console for first step) :

git clone https://gist.github.com/6878245.git
mv 6878245/head.html . && rm 6878245/ -rf
markdown yourmarkdown.md > body.html
git clone https://gist.github.com/6878289.git
mv 6878289/tail.html . && rm 6878289/ -rf
cat head.html body.html tail.html > index.html

Here is the second step when you edit your markdown file, and compile & combine it again :

git clone https://gist.github.com/6878094.git
mv 6878094/combine_md.sh . && chmod u+x combine_md.sh && rm 6878094/ -rf

After You got the snippet from My gists :

vim index.md
./combine_md.sh

and voila, your markdown is better now.

I started this blog as one of my first-ever entries into the world of the web, and went with wp.com because it was comfortable and easy. I certainly could migrate it to a self-hosted site, but if I’m doing that, then I’m going to move it off of wordpress altogether. I could also write the posts in markdown, transform them to html, and then cut-and-paste the html into a new post in the web browser. That sounds like a pain in the ass, and duplicates files where duplication isn’t necessary.

In the meantime, I still want to write…
