I'm looking for a markdown editor for Linux, which supports

  • live preview
  • creating a line break with enter (per default MarkDown requires creating a linebreak with a double space at the end of the line, which I find very cumbersome)

Currently I'm using Retext, which is a good editor, but only satisfies the first requirement

Typora is an otherwise great live markdown editor that lets you insert a paragraph break on Enter and single linebreak on Shift+Enter, without double whitepace needed. Perhaps that's good enough?
