KeenWrite is a competent Markdown text editor, but it faces stiff competition from more mature programs.
Many Linux users have long settled on their favourite text editor, and convincing them to move to a different editor is a challenging task.
String interpolation is common in many programming languages but not found in text editors. It makes KeenWrite akin to a simple programmer’s development environment than a simple text editor.
KeenWrite is definitely a work-in-progress. It would benefit from real-time collaboration functionality, thesaurus, autocomplete, and more besides.
