Is there any Linux software where I could edit rendered Markdown (preview)?

I know that I could edit the text file directly. But I was wondering if some software let me edit the rendered HTML and text file could get updated?


It sounds like what you really want is a "WYSAWYG" (What You See Approximates What You Get) editor for MarkDown. If that's actually the case, I can point you to Typora; I use the Windows version, and it works nicely.

  • +1 but it is closed source. – Nikhil Dec 19 '18 at 15:11
  • Yes, it's closed-source, but you didn't specify that you wanted FOSS. – Jeff Zeitlin Dec 19 '18 at 15:59
  • Yes, I missed that. I always prefer open source. I found these only after I search for Typora as recommended by you. – Nikhil Dec 19 '18 at 16:18

I don't recommend Typora, as it is closed source. I found:

  1. nhnent/tui.editor: 🍞📝 Markdown WYSIWYG Editor. GFM Standard + Chart & UML Extensible. and
  2. marktext/marktext: 📝Next generation markdown editor, running on platforms of MacOS Windows and Linux.
  • There are things not to like about MarkText on Windows (mostly that it doesn't conform to UI standards, even less so than Typora), but thank you for this recommendation. – Jeff Zeitlin Dec 19 '18 at 16:11
