Convert Markdown Files To HTML Files – OS X System Service

If you use a Mac and you have a big folder full of plain-text files formatted in Markdown and you want to batch-convert them all to .html files, this will do it. Download the .zip, unarchive it, and double-click the resulting package. You’ll then be able to select multiple .md (or Markdown-formatted .txt files, or whatever) in the Finder, right-click (or ctrl-click, if you’re nasty) on them, and select the obvious item in the menu. Bingo.

Note: This service presupposes that you have Fletcher Penney’s Multimarkdown installed in usr/local/bin. Edit the path in Automator if necessary.
