You might also want to know that the software used to render GitHub's repo wikis is called Gollum, and is freely available under an MIT license.

I also sometimes use Grip, a tool which uses GitHub's own Markdown rendering API with local Markdown files, for previewing READMEs or just quickly generating a nice-looking render.

(Not that I have anything against your renderer, just thought it might be useful info.)

I did use Gollum when I first thought of the idea but I don't remember why I didn't like it. Most likely because I wanted to use gitlab, can't remember.

Grid looks cool I'll definitely give it a try.

Thanks for sharing
