  • markdownlint

    A Node.js style checker and lint tool for Markdown/CommonMark files.

    There are no compilers in the Flutter project that guarantee to find issues in README.md or CHANGELOG.md files.

You can use this extension to check for problems locally and verify the content before publishing it live. Browse the user manual to learn more about rules.
