A Lightweight and User-Friendly Markdown Editor that Makes It Easy for You to Edit, Render and Export Your Work to Html Documents
MacDown is a straightforward macOS Markdown editor that enables you to work with Markdown text from within a simple and clean interface.
Simple, handy and highly-customizable Markdown editor and renderer
Markdown is a plain text formatting syntax that can be effortlessly converted to HTML using various editors and utilities. Markdown is mainly used to format “readme” files, in-text editors for creating rich text documents and in online conversations on forums.
MacDown comes with a minimalistic and unobtrusive user interface that helps you focus on your writing. For a distraction-free and more generous workspace, you can try the full-screen mode that helps you take advantage of your Mac’s entire display.
Intuitive interface and keyboard shortcuts
The main window is divided into two panels, in the left the Markdown editing panel and the preview panel in the right. Most changes in the editing panel are automatically rendered and displayed in the right panel in real-time.
It goes without saying that MacDown helps you export your work as an HTML document to a location of your choice and also enables you to return to previous versions of your file with just a couple of mouse clicks via the File menu.
By accessing the View menu, you can render the Markdown preview, reset the split and enter in full-screen mode. Thanks to the Format menu, you can copy your selection in the HTML format, change the text format and heathers, insert new paragraphs, links and images.
Export your work to HTML documents and customize the Markdown renderer with ease
What is more, MacDown features different CSS-based preview themes that you can use to view your work in the preview panel. Each Preview theme has its own set of highlighting schemes that you can choose to use or not.
MacDown’s editor can be easily configured based on your preferences and, as a result, you can change the base font, theme, adjust the text insets, line spacing and even personalize the behavior.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used MacDown for Mac and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
