    maven { url "https://jitpack.io" }
  }
}

Step 2. Add the dependency

    implementation 'com.github.mukeshsolanki:MarkdownView-Android:<latest-version>'
}

How to use MarkdownView

Its fairly simple and straight forward to use MarkdownView in you application. Just add the following in your layout where you want to display the markdown file/text.

<com.mukesh.MarkdownView
    android:id="@+id/markdown_view"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
/>

and reference it in your activity/fragment and assign the markdown text/file like wise.

MarkdownView markdownView = (MarkdownView) findViewById(R.id.markdown_view);
markdownView.setMarkDownText("# Hello World\nThis is a simple markdown"); //Displays markdown text
...
markdownView.loadMarkdownFromAssets("README.md"); //Loads the markdown file from the assets folder
...
File markdownFile=new File("filePath");
markdownView.loadMarkdownFromFile(markdownFile); //Loads the markdown file.
