You can also bind the markdown input to a scope variable:

<div btf-markdown="markdown">
<!-- Uses $scope.markdown -->

Or include a markdown file:

<div btf-markdown ng-include="'README.md'">
<!-- Uses content from README.md -->

config(['markdownConverterProvider', function (markdownConverterProvider) {
