Easy and Extensible Markdown Editing

Markdown is everywhere and many of us are using Markdown for all sorts of different purposes. Wouldn't it be nice if you have an editor that can keep up with all of those scenarios?

Markdown Monster gives a responsive text editor that has you covered with Markdown syntax highlighting, and fast text entry, so it it's easy to navigate your Markdown text. A collapsable live preview lets you preview your markdown, or export your markdown to HTML. Inline spell-checking and word counts keep your content streamlined and a handful of optional toolbar and menu options help you embed and link images and links into your Markdown. Our preview can display syntax colored code snippets for most common coding languages and the preview can be easily customized with HTML and CSS to match your own sites and preferences. Finally, if you're a blogger you can easily take your Markdown and publish it straight to your blog from the editor.

In addition to building an attractive and highly functional Markdown editor and viewer, we also wanted to make sure the editor is extensible so you can plug in custom features of your own. Markdown Monster's .NET based add-in API makes it easy to build extensions that let you hook into the UI, the editor behavior and the publishing process. We use this same add-in API to build some of Markdown Monster's internal features like the Weblog Publisher and Screen Capture. The sky's the limit. Find out more about creating an addin with .NET.
