Notes


Render a Markdown document in raw mode

You must send Markdown as plain text (using a Content-Type header of text/plain or text/x-markdown) to this endpoint, rather than using JSON format. In raw mode, GitHub Flavored Markdown is not supported and Markdown will be rendered in plain format like a README.md file. Markdown content must be 400 KB or less.
