Description

Sets the colors and styles used for rendering Markdown content in the console. These styles are defined using ANSI escape codes that change the color and style of the Markdown text being rendered.

For more information about Markdown, see the CommonMark website.

Note

The string values used in the settings are the characters that follow the Escape character ([char]0x1B) for the ANSI escape sequence. Do not include the Escape character in the string. For more information about ANSI escape codes work, see ANSI_escape_code.

Examples

Example 1 - Switch to the Light Theme

This example selects the Light theme and displays the new configuration using the PassThru parameter.

Set-MarkdownOption -Theme Light -PassThru

Header1         : [7m
Header2         : [4;33m
Header3         : [4;34m
Header4         : [4;35m
Header5         : [4;36m
Header6         : [4;30m
Code            : [48;2;155;155;155;38;2;30;30;30m
Link            : [4;38;5;117m
Image           : [33m
EmphasisBold    : [1m
EmphasisItalics : [36m

Example 2 - Customize the color and style settings

This example changes the escape code for the Markdown headers. The default configuration for headers renders them as underlined text of various colors. This change removes the underline style.

$mdOptions = Get-MarkdownOption
$mdOptions.Header2 = '[93m'
$mdOptions.Header3 = '[94m'
$mdOptions.Header4 = '[95m'
$mdOptions.Header5 = '[96m'
$mdOptions.Header6 = '[97m'
Set-MarkdownOption -InputObject $mdOptions -PassThru

Header1         : [7m
Header2         : [93m
Header3         : [94m
Header4         : [95m
Header5         : [96m
Header6         : [97m
Code            : [48;2;155;155;155;38;2;30;30;31m
Link            : [4;38;5;117m
Image           : [33m
