Fancy Server

Runs a server that renders Markdown (*.md and *.markdown) files from the current directory, with a Bootstrap-styled layout.


npm install -g fancy-server


Start a server for the current directory. Defaults to port 8000 and the default Bootstrap theme.


Specify a custom port with -p:

fancy-server -p 3000

Specify a Bootswatch theme with -t:

fancy-server -t readable

Specify a highlight.js theme with -h (if your Markdown includes code examples):

fancy-server -h rainbow

That's it!
