Or alternatively an installable one for linux...

I mean a feature that propose on the fly alternatives while typing for the most common words, for instance typing "veh" would propose "vehicle".

    We will need much more information to give good recommendations here. Please take a look at What is required for a question to contain "enough information"? Then please edit your question and see if you can incorporate some of these improvements. Especially missing: apart from auto-complete, what other features do you need? Have you checked with similar questions already answered?

    Do you need it to autocomplete only Markdown syntax? Could you give an example of what you type and what it should propose? Thanks!

  • @NicolasRaoul Just write generic contents and be able to autocomplete the most common words. Something like Ctrl-p in Vim.

I use ReText editor for Markdown text in Ubuntu, which I installed from Ubuntu Software. ReText is written in Python language and works on Linux and other POSIX-compatible platforms. The latest stable version of ReText can be downloaded from PyPI. You can also use the pip install ReText command to install it from there.

Type in your markdown text and then press the IMG: Preview button to see what the formatted markdown text looks like. Alternatively you can enable live preview by default in ReText by selecting Edit -> Preferences -> check Use live preview by default.

ReText supports tabs, live text preview and syntax highlighting. Spell checking can be enabled with Edit -> Spell check -> Enable. Supported export formats: HTML, ODT, PDF.

All known third-party extensions for ReText are listed in Python-Markdown wiki.


I use Yosoro in windows platform. it doesn't support autocopmlete but it has two pane editor with wysiwyg support
