This post reviews several methods for converting a Markdown (.md) formatted file to PDF, from UNIX or Linux machines.

GRIP

http://superuser.com/questions/689056/how-can-i-convert-github-flavored-markdown-to-a-pdfI've had success using grip to display markdown in Chrome and then use Chrome's 'Save as PDF' option in the Print dialog.

grip will render the markdown on localhost:5000 - just edit away and refresh the browser. Print when ready.

This gave a more reliable representation than pandoc and was lighter weight than installing latex (required by pandoc for pdf generation).

The print is not command line in this answer, but still found this easier/more reliable (looked 100% like Github for a long document including relatively linked images and code highlighting).

Node.js

The GRIP results look just like GitHub README pages. The Pandoc result looks like (is)LaTex format. And the Node.js result is the most original looking, but slightly harder toread than GRIP output PDF.
