## Setup

1. Install dependencies
git clone https://github.com/dendronhq/markdown-links.git
npm install

2. Use Run Extension from the debug pane (note: this requires that dendron be installed. VSCode might ask you to install Dendron and reload at this point)
3. Make sure you are inside a Dendron workspace. If not, either initialize one using Dendron: Initialize Workspace or change to one using Dendron: Change Workspace

## Setup without Dendron Extension Installed

Dendron markdown links depends on the dendron extension to be active. You can still make it work without the extension by the following instructions:

1. Comment out the following in package.json
"extensionDependencies": [
"dendron.dendron"
],

2. Follow step 2 in the setup instructions above.
3. Launch the dendron server. Useful for development purposes or to launch the server in a specified port

The CLI will also write out .dendron.* metadata files in the workspace root just the same as the Dendron plugin.

dendron-cli launchEngineServer --wsRoot ~/Dendron/ --vaults ~/Dendron/vault --port 3005
