md2term - Markdown parser for highlights and colors in terminal.
md2term was created to be a markdown parser for short texts (less than 30 lines) that could be used in terminal presentations (text slides) and, at the same time, able to be correctly visualized by other parsers on websites (GitHub, GitLab, etc). The script can also be used satisfactorily to view other texts in markdown, as long as its limitations are observed.

Force line break¶
Paragraphs, list items, and quotes can \ have lines broken where desired \ using backslashes.
- Does not interpret nested lists (sub-items) correctly.
- Long line breaks can happen in the middle of words, but you can work around the problem by specifying where they should happen in the source text (this is a valid GFM markdown markup).
- Using the -c and -p options together can lead to buffer redraw problems in less.
- Links are just visual representations using the markup label (not the URL). If you prefer the URL, it can be used as a label or written as plain text (most terminals interpret URLs as links).
