Markdown to PDF

Convert markdown-formatted documents to pdf files without ever leaving Atom.

Usage

Just focus the window containing your markdown file and use the convert command (Packages > Markdown PDF > Convert).

The output PDF will be styled similar to the markdown on github.com, as well as any user styles you have added.

It will appear in the same directory as the Markdown you are converting, with the same name and a .pdf extension.

You can set parameters in the package's settings, such as page and border size.

Tips

User styles

Note that user styles will have to be encapsulated in a .markdown-body selector to override the default stylesheets, like this:

.markdown-body {
  h1 {
    font-size: 1.3em;
  }
}

Page breaks

Page breaks can be added with this element:

<div style="page-break-after: always;"></div>

Image paths

If you have trouble rendering an image, you may have to use a relative path:

# this doesn't work:
![logo](/assets/logo.png)

# but this does
![logo](./assets/logo.png)
