Why I recommend Mark Text as a markdown text editor ?
Mark Text is a great markdown text editor.
Advantages of Mark Text
- simple and easy to use
- Realtime preview (WYSIWYG) : a.k.a seamless writing/editing with distraction-free writing experience
- fast enough and efficient
- open source software
- free of charge.
- Markdown extensions such as math expressions (KaTeX), front matter and emojis.
- export as HTML or PDF.
- support dark mode
- paste images directly from clipboard (a.k.a you can copy-and-paste an image).
- edit modes : source code mode, typewriter mode and focus mode.
- cross platform : you can install markText on any Linux distribution, Mac OS or Windows OS.
note : WYSIWYG is short for “what you see is what you get”
Disadvantages of Mark Text
- still in development
I write my notes in this mark text as markdown. So I can share them as PDF or HTML if needed later.
I also write my plans for my work in mark text, then export it as PDF file and share it with my team.
