I'm searching for an editor to work with my notes organized as a hierarchical file tree in a markdown format. It should display both file tree and text editor panels like that:

+================================================+
||  notes                 ||  Text editor area  ||
||  ├── cooking           ||                    ||
||  ├── personal          ||                    ||
||  │   ├── bookmarks.md  ||                    ||
||  │   └── random.md     ||                    ||
||  └── projects          ||                    ||
+================================================+

It should:

  1. display simultaneously file tree and editor area (and be able to switch between files);
  2. support markdown format (highlight markdown format and display formatted preview);
  3. (nice to have) be able to display TOC generated from markdown headers in file;
  4. be open source and work under Linux.

There are lots of markdown editors for Linux but they all lacking file tree panel for quick access to all files under working directory.
