    I know more then half of them and they are all basically crap. Only few of them produce correct markdown (like CommonMark) and have no huge bugs, but all of them are either in-line editor or side-by-side editor.

    If its an editor – it should not get into the way with any type of synthax. Markdown is really no different from HTML, its just easier to visually parse – thus all “editors” fail as they are really authoring tools, but not text editors. The side-by-side or in-line mode should be optional, and the main mode should be WYSIWYG which is absent.

    There is only ONE markdown editor that does it right – and its “Texts”. It is WYSIWYG – means its like LibreOffice, but its:
    a) not free, trial, 30 days limit
    b) not Linux (but runs in Wine)

    What it does is – a full richtext WYSIWYG that outputs and reads in native MD, without all the syntax bursting into the eyes.
    Will gladly pay $5-$9 to anyone who creates something like Texts.

    Sublime text, has a markdown plugin with live preview using Markmon.

    Vim also has great support for markdown.
    You can use the vim-markdown plugin (among several others) :)

    Hey @Aaron Kili

    What a great article, I’ve liked Atom and Haroopad text editors. Lots of thanks for giving us new tools and advises to use it about.
