mdp - A command-line based markdown presentation tool


mdp [OPTION]... [FILE]


mdp is a command-line program that allows you to make elegant presentations from markdown
formatted FILEs.

It is as easy as write your presentation content in the text editor of your preference and
launch the presentation from the command-line.


Input Control
FILE The input file from which the presentation is read. If no file is specified, or if
the file name is -, the presentation is read from standard input.

Output Control
-f, --nofade
Disable color fading in 256 color mode.

-i, --invert
Swap black and white color.

-t, --notrans
Disable transparency in transparent terminal.

Miscellaneous Options
-d, --debug
Enable debug messages on STDERR. Add multiple times to increases debug level.

-h, --help
Display usage message and exit.

-v, --version
Display version and license information.


For a complete list of supported markups, refer the sample presentation (sample.md)
provided alongside mdp, or online available at https://github.com/visit1985/mdp.

The input FILE is split into multiple slides by horizontal rules. Each consisting of at
least 3 --- or *** characters on a single line. This line must be prefixed by an
completely empty line. It can also contain spaces but no other characters.

If any slide is too large to fit into your current screen, an error message will be
displayed at the moment the presentation is launched.

Line-by-Line Mode
Block-by-Block Mode
A single <br>, <BR> or ^ on an otherwise empty line signals mdp to stop output of the
current slide (stop point) and wait for a key-press by the user.

This enables the user to display bullet points or list items one by one (line by line) or
block by block.

mdp supports header lines in the format of @[DESCRIPTION] [VALUE] The first two header
lines are displayed as title and author in top and bottom bar.

Headers are only recognized at the top of the input FILE.

Line spanning markup
Supported are headlines, code blocks, quotes and unordered lists.

In-line markup
As well as bold text, underlined text and in-line code.


Most terminals are able to display 256 colors these days. But some of them enable only 16
colors by default. To enjoy mdp's full capabilities, these terminals need to be signaled
to enable 256 color mode. This is usually done by setting the TERM environment variable.

export TERM=xterm-256color


h, j, k, l, Arrow keys, Space, Enter, Backspace, Page Up, Page Down
Display next/previous slide or continue after a stop point.

g, Home
Jump to first slide.

G, End Jump to last slide.

1..N Jump to Nth slide.

r Reload the input FILE. This key is disabled if input was read from standard input.

q Exit mdp.
