Rich can render Markdown to the console. To render markdown, construct a Markdown object then print it to the console. Markdown is a great way of adding rich content to your command line applications. Here’s an example of use:

# This is an h1

Rich can do a pretty *decent* job of rendering markdown.

1. This is a list item
2. This is another list item
from rich.console import Console
from rich.markdown import Markdown

console = Console()
md = Markdown(MARKDOWN)

Note that code blocks are rendered with full syntax highlighting!

You can also use the Markdown class from the command line. The following example displays a readme in the terminal:

python -m rich.markdown

Run the following to see the full list of arguments for the markdown command:

python -m rich.markdown -h
