Installing and Running TextCarver

TextCarver is a node module. If you aren’t already comfortable using node, you’ll probably be happier waiting for a later version of TextCarver.

Installation

npm install -g textcarver

Running

textcarver sourcefile.md

We recommend using .md files for simple source files and .textcarver for files that contain extensive TextCarver code.

Under the hood

TextCarver performs two separate passes on each file:

If you like, you can run only one of the passes:

textcarver -firstpass sourcefile.md
textcarver -secondpass sourcefile.md
