More Markdown editors


I use markdown extensively on my websites, “Markdown” is two things: (1) a plain text formatting syntax; and (2) a software tool, written in Perl, that converts the plain text formatting to HTML allowing you to build HTML documents in an easily readable form. I mainly use BBEdit and regard it as the “gold standard” but I keep an eye out for other markdown editors and wrote a summary of my findings, I’ve just been sent details of two more apps.

Eratois a simple Markdown editor for the Mac. It is fast, extremely easy to use and gets out of your way. It offers full support for both regular Markdown syntax, GitHub flavoured markdown and YAML front matter.

Marked2 is a previewer for Markdown files. Use it with your favourite text editor and it updates every time you save.

I’ve added them to the summary page.
