Markdown Explorer

Easily explore, view and edit markdown documentation of a file tree.

Just drop a folder on the window (or clic on the folder icon on top left) to show the Markdow documentation of this folder. Then, explore the tree on the left, and toggle view/edit mode on md file with the button on the top right.

Note

This app is my first Electron app (except very small tests), then it's probably not a good example ;-), it's a quick dev to learn Electron and it would be necessary to refactor the code in the (near) future (but it's functional :-) ).
