Building a File Structure in Typora

Best note-taking software for programmers - Typora


  1. Stan Bright avatar
    Simplicity and elegance

    It is very well built with simplicity in mind. There are several themes and all of them look amazing. I love the "typewriter" and "focus" mode. In contrast with other apps that focus the current window and remove all visibility options, Typora goes one step ahead and fades down all other paragraphs as well.

    👍 Pros:    Beautiful themes|Typewriter mode|Focus mode

  • Ask HN: What's the best way to write a book in Markdown?
    Typora.. And keep each chapter as separate file…. - Source: Hacker News / 8 months ago
  • Show HN: Lexeme – open-source ChatGPT text editor
    If Lexeme is similar to Typora (, it could be fantastic and might even surpass Typora in terms of quality. On the other hand, if Typora already has these features, it's quite powerful. - Source: Hacker News / 9 months ago

  • Ask HN: How did you migrate off Evernote?
    Evernote was ok for a little bit, but the only thing it really did for me was search... Once I realized that I switched tactics. I organized my life into domains, and got okay at using grep to replace it. My saving grace that I would pay twice for is Though worth mentioning Apple Notes has come a long way. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Show HN: I've built open-source, collaborative, WYSIWYG Markdown editor
    Typora Open source — I’ve used all three, the first two are are WYSIWYG. All are collaborative. HackMD has a nice two window editor that renders MD as you type. Curious how Vrite compares with these. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Hey there, I've designed a simple and clean word substitution tool perfect for those who appreciate the beauty of minimalism
    Otherwise, I do like the Bootstrap design, simple code, and the mobile responsiveness. If I was do to continue working on this project, I would properly implement 'minimalism' by following in the steps of Typora. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Switch from Day one to…
    I use Typora. My files are synced via iCloud with Advanced Data Protection for iCloud turned on to get end-to-end encryption. I also back up two other devices, and they are backed up using an automated and encrypted solution. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Best website to write a rulebook for ttrpgs
    I use Obsidian ( for a lot of things, including my RPG stuff, and there are options for exporting things as PDFs. It’s great for getting organized and doing research, but I would use other tools for long-form writing and layout. What I like about Obsidian though is that everything is done in Markdown ( and I can use Pandoc ( to transform the source to... Source: about 1 year ago
  • does anyone here use scripture journals?
    I needed something more robust than journals, so I opted for writing on the computer rather than handwriting. I chose to use a markdown editor called Typora, along with a cloud drive as storage. It keeps track of changes, so I can always go back to a previous version of a document, and the markdown language is saved as plain text with formatting characters, but is displayed as formatted in the editor itself.

  • People who use Notion to plan their whole lives
    This was almost exactly my requirements - I landed on and I've been pretty happy ever since. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • How do I edit in Markdown without having a preview?
    Another option could be to use Typora as an editor within Joplin. Just an option. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Document converter to combine and convert a bunch of .md (markdown) files into PDF?
    It's integrated in Typora which I use as a Markdown Editor. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Tool for writing articles with figures and calculations using inline "cells" (like Jupyter notebook)
    If you don't necessarily need to evaluate code in the editor but want to display lots different formats, including math, I like Typora. It's markdown-centric but renders math, chemical equations, etc. And also HTML when you need it (without forcing you into writing it most of the time). Source: over 1 year ago
  • What app should I use to actually write the system?
    I use Typora. It costs a bit but its a very good WYSIWYM editor for markdown. Source: over 1 year ago
  • A bit weird, but is there word-processing software (like MS Word) that uses markdown (or similar) ?
    I'd recommend Typora if you're looking for something less intense than Obsidian. Source: over 1 year ago
  • 6 tools I use every day as a full-stack developer
    Typora is a paid markdown editor, yet its fair price ($ 14.99 for a lifetime license usable on three devices) is totally worth it. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Something like Joplin but not exactly.
    I use Typora which seems similar to Quiver and also costs about $15. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • How to install Arch Linux for WSL
    You could also use something like Notion, which as a Markdown editor, but in terms of Markdown editors, I prefer Typora ($15) because it supports Mermaid where you can generate UML diagrams and other charts and uses MathJax for LaTeX support. You can also embed HTML and SVG and generate a preview of what the code looks like. - Source: / almost 2 years ago
  • Ask HN: Is there any beautiful Markdown editor?
    I, too, have used *Typora* for years whilst in Beta. I appreciated it's approach and features enough that I've paid for it. Alternately, there's a free editor called *MarkText* that is maybe 85% there as compared to Typora. I use this on my work Windows machine, which is pretty locked down due to corporate policies.

  • Ask HN: Is there any beautiful Markdown editor?
    The only option: Nothing else comes close. Maybe VSCode with extensibility and using that for other languages/syntax, but it’s amazing. After beta testing, I paid the $15 without a second thought. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago

    I only use editors that render markdown with the markup. I found: Desktop: Mobile (and Desktop): - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
