Bower Component for a simple AngularJS Markdown directive using Showdown. Based on this excellent tutorial by @johnlinquist.


  1. bower install angular-markdown-directive
  2. Include angular-sanitize.js. It should be located at bower_components/angular-sanitize/.
  3. Include showdown.js. It should be located at bower_components/showdown/.
  4. Include markdown.js provided by this component into your app.
  5. Add btford.markdown as a module dependency to your app.
  6. Insert the btf-markdown directive into your template:
 <btf-markdown>#Markdown directive *It works!*</btf-markdown>  

You can also bind the markdown input to a scope variable:
 <div btf-markdown="markdown">  
 <!-- Uses $scope.markdown -->  
Or include a markdown file:
 <div btf-markdown ng-include="''">  
 <!-- Uses content from -->  


You can configure the markdownConverterProvider:
 angular.module('myApp', [  
 config(['markdownConverterProvider', function (markdownConverterProvider) {  
  // options to be passed to Showdown  
  // see:  
   extensions: ['twitter']
