  • Markdown, Asciidoc, or reStructuredText - a tale of docs-as-code
    Before choosing a markup language, you'll need to choose either a desktop code editor like VSCode or stay in your terminal and use something like EmacsVIM. Most code editors will have plug-ins for popular markup languages which will offer you syntax highlighting, preview, etc. If you're testing or learning a specific syntax, there are many online editors, such as, StackEdit for Markdown. - Source: / 3 months ago

  • A bit weird, but is there word-processing software (like MS Word) that uses markdown (or similar) ?

  • Is there an npm package that would add color coding when typing markdown in a textarea element?
    I want to create a simple markdown editor. A simple element, just like the markdown editor here on Reddit.

    I was wondering whether there's a package that would listen to keystrokes and if something **bold** has been typed it would make that part bold, for example.

    For example, this stackedit web app does it perfectly.

    When you say "rich text" do you just mean you want it to display the formatted document? This looks pretty good. - Source: Reddit / 9 months ago

  • Notion vs Confluence
    You might want to check out - it's a completely free web editor interface for markdown files which also can sync to things like Google Drive, Github and Dropbox. It looks really good - I tried it out earlier but while it can create and edit files in your google drive, I threw in some files to GD separately and those didn't appear to "light up" immediately in the Stackedit file explorer window.... - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
  • I’m trying to find an easy simple website maker preferably free to do something like this. I want it to be simple a list like that and you can click on them and pics show up to what is being presented.
    You know, the easiest idea is to make something using markdown or a markdown editor like, and upload the pictures to an image host like imgur and just link that. Using a markdown editor should be as easy as using Microsoft word. And just use that markdown on something like this. - Source: Reddit / 10 months ago
