Terminal markdown viewer
When you edit multiple md files remotely, like in a larger mkdocs project, context switches between editing terminals and viewing browser may have some efficiency impact. Also sometimes there is just no browser, like via security gateways offering just a fixed set of applications on the hop in machine. Further, reading efficiency and convenience is often significantly improved by using colors. And lastly, using such a thing for cli applications might improve user output, e.g. for help texts.
This is where mdv, a Python based Markdown viewer for the terminal might be a good option.
