What is a MARKDOWN File Type?

Markdown files, in addition to HTML documentation systems, are also useful with source code version control systems. This explains why plain text files can easily be viewed in relation to historical revisions. Projects created with the popular online version control system GitHub often use a file called README.markdown, which contains the readme for the source code.

A Perl program called Markdown " is available to convert Markdown to HTML. It can be downloaded from Daring Fireball maintained by John Gruber, the developer of Markdown.

The .MD, .MARKDN and .MDOWN extensions can also be used in demarcation files. The most popular versions, however, are: .markdown ", .md " and .md ".
