    Actually, None of these are markdown editors, they are all more or less **pure text editors** with a **markdown preview**. Don’t get me wrong, Some of these are GREAT text editors, but they aren’t MD editors.

    An MD editor would look like a **VERY** light-weight version of something like MS Word. Maybe like WordPad, but only with buttons for bold, italic and underline, plus headings, blockquotes, links, tables, etc. ONLY what is available in the MD specification(s)…

      Thank you. These are exactly my thoughts. I also would have liked to see which ones were based on Electron (and/or the language used). Imagine text-editing a simple file and having to wait an entire minute to load the “editor” and using 1gb RAM in the process.

    Caret, Typora, Abricotine

    I love all of them, they have beautifully designed user interfaces, are easy to use and have special features, but I use Caret most of the time, it is being developed and updated regularly and simply fits all my writing needs.

    Consider MindForger – it is more than just Markdown editor, it is Markdown IDE.

    With MindForger you can edit multiple documents, perform refactoring/cloning/extraction of sections, use document/section templates and more.

    * Single or dual pane interface
    * Extra Markdown features: diagrams, GitHub flavor, source code syntax highlighting
    * Markdown editor syntax highlighting
    * Code Syntax Highlighting
    * Math blocks Tex/LaTex support
    * Customizable themes

    why every editor’s screen shot has a different gtk/qt and icon theme? It won’t give the idea of the editor’s default look. For example remarkable has a numix icon theme I guess.

    I am using Remarkable in Opensuse 42.2. It is failing to export to PDF
