    Pros: 

    Elegant, simple text editor with markdown support

    Cons: 

    None

    I used my code editor before to take note, but Left is the better option, especially if you want to use markdown. Left displays the headings on the left, to stay organized and fast access different subheadings.

    Pros: 

    Simple, elegant, sexy even.

    Cons: 

    Constrast on some themes is not accessible - no spell check

    It's so fresh and so clean. I seems 'basic' but when you account for the

    spacing and structural considersations made, time has clearly been spent on Left.

    The theme are a nice touch as is this being open source! The people behind Left are dudes!

Love how clean your work is @neauoire and @rekkabell 🖤 Does this substitute for a code-editor as well? If not, syntax highlighting would look great in this!

@rekkabell @amrith It shouldn't. It doesn't have syntax highlight and language autocomplete. But I still use it from time to time to write yaml database stuff ;)

@be2n Sure! I'll add it right away, give me an hour or two. Are you on Windows or OSX?

@be2n I've spoken too fast, adding a spellchecker is a lot more work than I expected. I'll have to cogitate on this a bit longer..

@be2n I'm one step ahead :) I've been spending on time on this and I have hunspell implemented. It works almost reliably.
