Going mad(1) - TJ Holowaychuk
mad(1) is a tiny tool that allows you to view markdown manual pages. I’m a huge fan of man in general, but the format is pretty annoying and often converted from markdown, textile etc anyway. The output man produces is also pretty bad in my opinion, mainly whitespace issues.

tj/mad: mad(1) is a markdown manual page viewer
Probably want to apply https://github.com/tj/mad/pull/22 right away, and 'cp *.md' from https://github.com/tj/mad-pages to ~/.local/share/mad.

This is also a really good template for new Bash utility scripts (good options parsing, local config, a 'share' directory, Makefile, self-update feature).

shundhammer/qphotoview: Qt-based photo viewer that concentrates on what photographers need.
I like how salty this guy is about all the "other" Linux image viewers. Gave a shoutout to 'xv' though!

Brett Terpstra's 'mdless' is still prettier, and it's as easy as a 'gem install mdless'.

The ones I know of (and which made me write mdv ;-) ):

1. There are quite a few from the js community (e.g. msee, ansidown, ansimd and also nd which is great) but they require nodejs & npm, which I don't have on my servers. Also I personally wanted table handling and admonition support throughout and prob. too old to hack other peoples' js (struggling enough with my own). But have a look at them, they do some things better than mdv in this early version (I try to learn from them). Also this would be worth a look ;-)
2. pandoc -> html -> elinks, lynx or pandoc -> groff -> man. (Heavy and hard to use from within other programs. Styling suboptimal)
3. vimcat (Also heavy and hard to use inline in other programs)

Summary: For production ready robust markdown viewing (e.g. for your customers) I recommend nd still, due to the early state of mdv. For playing around, especially with theming or when with Python, this one might be a valid alternative to look at.
