Why write another editor?
- I love writing. I have used a lot of markdown editors, yet there is still not an editor that can fully meet my needs. I don't like to be disturbed when I write by some unbearable bug. Mark Text uses virtual DOM to render pages which has the added benefits of being highly efficient and being open source. That way anyone who loves markdown and writing can use Mark Text.
- As mentioned above, Mark Text is completely free and open source and will be open source forever. We hope that all markdown lovers will contribute their own code and help develop Mark Text into a popular markdown editor.
- There are many markdown editors and all have their own merits, some have feautures which others don't. It's difficult to satisfy each markdown users needs but we hope Mark Text will be able to satisfy each markdown users' needs as much as possible. Although the latest Mark Text is still not perfect, we will try to make it as best as we possibly can.
