Markdown Viewer

Render Markdown as rich text.


Render Markdown as rich text in a sans-serif font. This shortcut converts Markdown text to rich text, and displays it with:

  • The system UI font
  • Appropriate text size for mobile devices
  • The system light/dark theme

This fixes the issue with the built-in “Make Rich Text from Markdown” action in Shortcuts, which only renders Markdown text as basic HTML and does not account for light/dark mode, screen size, or the system font.

Feel free to use this Markdown rendering method in other shortcuts. It’s simple CSS that helps the output look nice in Quick Look.
