How do I open an .md file?

When i click on the 1st link (with .md) it just "magically" opens in my browser (as html) - what are you using to have a problem?
Regardless, start with the 3rd link i added - to the official manual

Neither the sites nor the video you linked to are in any way affiliated with Roku, and are unlikely to be of much help, as such advice very quickly becomes out of date. The only official Roku documentation link you gave (at sdkdocs.roku.com) displays at the top of the page a note that the instructions are out of date, and refers you to the Roku Developer Blog.

Eclipse/BrightScript is notoriously difficult to install. I've attempted to install it myself on Windows on about 5 or 6 occasions, none of which were sucessful. I tried installing it one more time just now on a linux OS and, much to my surprise, was successful this time. Once I got the Java 8 JDK and JRE, and Eclipse, installed (the Neon version), I followed the official Roku instructions to install the BrightScript plugin, https://devtools.web.roku.com/ide/eclipse/plugin. Everything worked as advertised.

Note that the https://devtools.web.roku.com/ide/eclipse/plugin is not a web page address, so you won't be able to navigate to it with your web browser. You just enter the link in the 'Location:' field after you've made it as far as: Eclipse > Help > Install New Software > Add... , as described in the documentation.
