I'm looking for a self hosted markdown editor in PHP with a few special features.


  • Self hosted PHP
  • A file tree to the left with the possibility to create new files and folders
  • Load and save files
  • Split screen view with markdown on one side and rendered html live on the other


  • Custom style.css file to control the look of the output
  • Image drag and drop support
  • More file operations like rename and delete
  • It's good if it's free but it's not required
  • Would you do with a Javascript-based alternative? – Sonamor Jan 18 '19 at 10:55
  • Then I can't save the file to the server. – Jens Törnell Jan 19 '19 at 19:27
  • why can't you? What's stopping you? – Sonamor Jan 19 '19 at 19:30
  • @Sonamor Javascript can't write to the server. – Jens Törnell Jan 21 '19 at 8:14
