    Paid, no demo, not so minimal.

    Not so minimalistic, basic featured markdown editor but with a 5$ price tag.

    If you looking for really minimalistic markdown editor you should try Typora. It comes with seamless live preview, themes, touchbar support, and other cool features. What is more: Typora is in free during beta.

    Paid, no demo, no features, useless

    And we see yet another unnecessary so called markdown editor that features nothing new, as we've seen in dozens and dozens other markdown editors.

    Please, just go contribute to atom, the best markdown editor ever created ;)

Looks nice! Though I still feel like VIM is the best markdown editor ;)

Great job!! 😊 I’m looking for an Windows version? Could this be used as for Wordpress?

@ayush_chandra use Jetpack plugin as it has native markdown module. just copy into WP with that plugin and module active and you should be good.

@ayush_chandra Unfortunately MagicDown runs only on macOS. However, I am currently working on adding an Export feature to help all the writers export their content to multiple blog websites!

When I created MagicDown, I had no idea it would be so popular. I never expected my apps, the hobbies of a 16 year old, to get featured on Product Hunt! As a special thanks for supporting my project and getting it featured on Product Hunt, starting May 29, MagicDown will be 80% off for two weeks and can be bought at $0.99! Thank you everyone! I was focused on implementing the Markdown rendering and creating a non-intrusive design. As I continue to work on MagicDown, I promise to satisfy all the feature requests for everyone who uses this! You can leave your constructive reviews and feature requests by responding here or by DM’ing me on Twitter! Once again, thank you to everyone! I hope to make this one of the BEST Markdown apps!
