@fribbledom I'm going to have to give that a good look. I keep meaning to make a post about how much I really like markdown right now :)
Try it out 😆
We're working on making life on the command-line just a bit more awesome. News to be shared soon!
@fribbledom Baby Linux user question
I use Ubuntu so I have to use the .tar.gz release. But, I do not know what I am suppose to do with it.
How do I connect the contents of that archive to my shell so I can run it?
You could try and just install the debian package, it should work on Ubuntu, too.
For the .tar.gz, simply extract its contents (not unlike a ZIP archive): it contains one binary file called `glow` which you can simply put in /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin to make it globally available in your shell.
@fribbledom I like it. Thank you very much for taking the time to develop glow!
Is it possible to pipe the output in less and keep the colors?
@fribbledom I found a solution using `unbuffer` (see this post: https://superuser.com/a/1132741). The command looks like this `unbuffer glow Readme.md | less`. Still I think it would be great if it would be possible with a command line flag in glow such that the command `glow --some-flag | less` would preserve the colors.
@fribbledom Would you consider adding a port so it's easier to install and get updates? I would also looked into it, have written a few ports so far and some Go-based ebuilds for Gentoo. I just don't know what FreeBSD offers for Go so far. I can happily tell that I could go get and build glow from source. :)
