Simple Markdown Editor

A simple, beautiful, and online Markdown editor. Delightful editing for beginners and experts alike. Features built-in autosaving and spell checking.

A drop-in textarea replacement for writing beautiful and understandable Markdown. The WYSIWYG-esque editor allows users who may be less experienced with Markdown to use familiar toolbar buttons and shortcuts. In addition, the syntax is rendered while editing to clearly show the expected result. Headings are larger, emphasized words are italicized, links are underlined, etc. Markdown Editor is one of the first editors to feature both built-in autosaving and spell checking.

WYSIWYG editors that produce HTML are often complex and buggy. Markdown solves this problem in many ways, plus Markdown can be rendered natively on more platforms than HTML. However, Markdown is not a syntax that an average user will be familiar with, nor is it visually clear while editing. In otherwords, for an unfamiliar user, the syntax they write will make little sense until they click the preview button. Markdown Editor has been designed to bridge this gap for non-technical users who are less familiar with or just learning Markdown syntax.
