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 ;)

Pros:

None

Cons:

Paid, no demo, no features, useless

Hi Nuts)! I created MagicDown as a quick hobby and never expected it to be featured on Product Hunt! I wasn’t heavily focused on features. In the coming months, I’ll continue to improve MagicDown and add some new features! For the next two weeks, MagicDown will be 80% off! Thanks for your feedback and I hope to get in contact so we can discuss on how to improve MagicDown!

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

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!

I have been using MagicDown for some distraction free writing and it works like a charm. It supports a lot of Markdown features like highlights and tables unlike other Markdown apps like Bear. It’s also super fast which is always a bonus. There are 10 themes which is slightly too much as I only use Light and Dark Mode. Also, there is no export feature which woild be my highly requested feature. It is still impressive for someone who is only 16 years old!

Pros:

Super fast, one of the best Markdown apps I’ve used! It gets the job done!

Cons:

Doesn‘t have too many features. Could be slightly improved upon.
