Quick Guide


import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { MarkdownModule } from 'angular2-markdown';
import { AppComponent } from '../src/app.component';
  imports: [
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],


If you want syntax highlighting you need to import the prism css file.

Alternative 1: Import from cdn

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <base href="/">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico">
    <link href="" rel="stylesheet" />

Alternative 2: Download the css file (or copy it from node_modules/prismjs/themes/, place it somewhere in your src folder and import

<link href="/css/prism.min.css" rel="stylesheet" />

Alternative 3: Include the prism css file in your sass style file

@import 'prismjs/themes/prism.css';


<div Markdown>
    ### your markdown code
<!-- or use angular component -->
    ### your markdown code
<!-- to load from remote URL -->
<div Markdown path="/path/to/"></div>
<!-- load remote source code with auto syntax highlighting -->
<markdown path="/path/to/code.cpp"></markdown>
<markdown path="/path/to/"></markdown>
<!-- load remote source code from url stored in variable
(see additional details about variable binding in the next section) -->
<markdown [path]="urlVariable"></markdown>

Variable binding

Now, with >1.4.x you can bind a variable to the markdown component. To do so:

    selector: 'markdown,[Markdown]',
    template: `
    <textarea [(ngModel)]="textData"></textarea>
    <markdown [data]="textData"></markdown>
export class MyComp {
  public textData = `## Markdown content data`;

Marked customization

Marked can be customized/extended by accessing the renderer from the MarkdownService:

import { MarkdownService } from 'angular2-markdown';
    template: `
     > Block
     > quote
     > here
export class MyComp {
  constructor(private _markdown: MarkdownService) {}
  ngOnInit() {
    this._markdown.renderer.blockquote = (quote: string) => {
      return `<blockquote class="king-quote">${quote}</blockquote>`;

See marked documentation for all renderer extension points.


You can find a working example inside the demo directory.

To serve it locally, run:

git clone
npm i
npm run demo.serve
