Overview


README is an Unreal plugin intended to make it easier to access project documentation from within the Unreal editor. It can interpret basic markdown syntax and display it in the README editor tab.


Why use it


The README project documentation tool provides quick and easy access to your projects documentation from within the editor. This allows the documentation to be easily accessible without requiring a context switch out of the Unreal Editor and into a Browser etc, it also allows documentation to be included in source control. It is designed to minimize interruptions to the development flow and by having project documentation accessible right there in the editor it will feel like you haven't stopped coding at all.
