PyCharm: Markdown mode can display a Preview

I just discovered something great: The PyCharm markdown mode can display a preview!

It’s something that will help me document projects. Sometimes I wonder how the README of a project will look on github or bitbucket and the only way for me to check is to push my changes, fire up the browser, go to the repo and check it out. If there’s a mistake, then I have to do another commit, reload the browser and see what happens.

If you need more reasons to try PyCharm, check out my presentation “Why PyCharm?”
