Ghore (GitHub offline renderer)

alt text

Content

What is this?

Ghore is an open-source, offline command-line interface (CLI) tool specifically designed for developers and writers working with GitHub. Its primary function is to render Markdown files into HTML, closely emulating the GitHub Markdown style. This enables users to preview how their Markdown documents will look on GitHub before committing them to a repository.

Features

  • Offline Conversion: Convert Markdown files to HTML offline without the need for an internet connection.
  • Watch for Changes: Automatically update the HTML output when changes are made to the input Markdown file.
  • GitHub Styling: HTML output mirrors the GitHub Markdown style for consistency.
  • Code Block Highlighting: Integrated Starry Night ensures beautiful and syntax-highlighted code blocks.
  • Flowchart Support: It also supports live preview of mermaid code blocks (Github's API doesn't process mermaid codeblocks).

Examples

Highlights the below code block function using integrated Starry Night

    ```sh
    // Highlight code blocks function
const highlightCode = async (lang, str) => {
  if (!starryNight || !toHtml) {
    await initializeStarryNight();
  }
    ```

like this

const highlightCode = async (lang, str) => {
  if (!starryNight || !toHtml) {
    await initializeStarryNight();
  }

Below mermaid block will be diplayed

```mermaid
gitGraph:
    commit "test"
    branch newbranch
    checkout newbranch
    commit id:"1111"
    commit tag:"test"
    checkout main
    commit type: HIGHLIGHT
    commit
    merge newbranch
    commit
    branch b2
    commit
```

like this

gitGraph:
    commit "changes"
    branch newbranch
    checkout newbranch
    commit id:"1111"
    commit tag:"test"
