Elegant and simple. Very well done. But what's the value of the Wiki Search, though? It ends up opening up a new tab when you click on an article anyway. I thought it would allow you to reference it quickly or something. Thanks.

@joshuapinter Thanks :) Regarding your query, why wiki search? It was mainly implemented because I have seen many students jumping to wiki while making notes, writing essays etc. Thus wanted to make wiki search seamlessly integrated into the editor itself. Though when a search result is clicked it redirects you to wiki page if you want to read the complete article, but search also shows the brief description there itself to get acquainted with the topic. Let me know what you feel about it and if there is something that you would like to suggest? :)

@vijay_rohan I see where you're going with it and I think that's great but I don't think you went far enough in this iteration to add value to the process. If I'm using WikiPedia **that** much than I'd just pin a tab for it or have it on the second screen or something. If you made it super easy to search for the topic and reference the article in your text with a link or a footnote that would add value and justify the integration. Might even allow simple quoting from the article or something. I like the direction, though.

@joshuapinter I totally agree with your view point. What I will try to do is to create a wiki search icon in the tooltip itself when you select a particular word. Also, I will also explore other iterations of the same.

I really like how there are three notes that you can switch between. Haven't seen it done that before and that's a gorgeous interaction

This is great. Nice touch on using local storage for this, though, it makes me a little concerned about using this for long-term writing projects, e.g. sometimes it can take me weeks and months to write an article). I'm also seeing a buggy problem with there being varying line-height differences between lines. Nothing major, but the inconsistency can be a little jarring for my slightly OCD brain :p Thanks for making this available all the same!

@alirtariq Hey! Thanks a lot for your feedback :) Yeah, you are right it might sometimes take a lot of time in writing for long term project, therefore I have tried to keep it stored in local storage for quite a lot of time so that it does not get erased even after few weeks. And yes, I will make the line height consistent :) Let me know if there is something else you want to add!
