Here’s an image of Abricotine in action, displaying the project’s configuration Markdown file.
The application’s menu bar offers the usual formatting options. Many of Abricotine’s options are on the View menu, where you can adjust font size, show table of contents and blocks for easier navigation.
The editor comes with auto preview which is enabled by default. This preview shows text elements such as headers, images, todo lists, anchors, IFrames, and embedded videos while you type. This means you can preview your document directly in the text editor rather than in a side pane.
Here’s an embedded video, and a maths equation written in LaTeX.
Table of Contents is available from the menu entry ‘View / Show Table of Contents’.
The editor offers two themes: a light theme and a dark theme. Here’s the dark theme applied. You can also create your own themes by editing two files: theme.json and theme.less.
The desktop with its cluttered interface, the chatter of social media, the almost limitless content of the internet, the chirping email notifications, the list of distractions is endless. When writing, concentration is vital. Fortunately, there are computer applications which are designed to offer a distraction-free environment, to ensure the writer has mental clarity, by not being distracted by the operating system and a cluttered interface. Abricotine offers a distraction-free environment with its full screen view.
