Convert markdown to PDF using Node

Solution one is markdown-pdf.

Install the “markdown-pdf” npm module.

Then run the following code in node.js:

1

var markdownpdf = require("markdown-pdf");
markdownpdf()
.from("/home/auser/test.markdown")
.to("/home/auser/test.pdf", function () {
console.log("Done")
})

Solution two I found(added on 2017-10-26) which is better: mdpdf.
