Mark Text – simple and elegant open source Markdown editor


Mark Text is high quality open source software. The WYSIWYG edit mode with a live preview in a single pane is great.

Mark Text offers an excellent set of features, yet retains its simplicity. It’s a beautifully stylish program and easily our Markdown editor of choice even though it faces stiff competition from other open source programs.

We’re generally not fans of software using Electron. This isn’t really a criticism of Electron, but how it’s implemented. There’s so many new projects using this software framework that end up being huge memory hogs. And this is hard to justify for small utilities. Mark Text’s memory footprint is fairly hefty. Just open the program and it’s gobbling about 700MB of RAM. Fortunately, Mark Text has so many redeeming features.
