SAP Web IDE – markdown (.md) preview

This custom extension adds a markdown preview in SAP Web IDE (cloud edition – personal does not have support for custom extensions).

When a .md file is active, then a preview icon is available in the right pane:

The preview is opened in a new tab/window; Github styling and flavour is used.

The extension uses Showdown as a converter. You can pass its options or change used flavour – more about it here. The output is sanitazed by DOMPurify.

Installation:

Add a new destination in your Cloud Platform Cockpit.
URL: https://jwsapwebidemarkdown-p791767trial.dispatcher.hanatrial.ondemand.com

Go to Extensions in SAP Web IDE (refresh if already opened) – the extension should be available (wait some minutes if not and refresh).
