I've been using iA Writer for quite a while and I'm curious what others are using. Before iA I used Atom with markdown support.
+1 for iA Writer
I love iA - such a app that works well across all iOS/macOS devices.
Same here! Love it!
yep. same here
I was hesitant to shell out any $ for iA writer, but sync with mobile apps has been invaluable, I love it.
Wow, I love it already. Just trying the beta.
This looks really good.
Very light and customisable.
This is by far my favorite, it's clean, works great, and is very customizable.
I love Typora. Just started using it a few weeks ago and I could not be happier.
I use Ulysses as my library and note system. It has good organizational tools, fast sync, and treats meta-data well.
But if I need to focus on a single document, I write it in iA Writer.
- 1 for Ulysses. Its markdown capabilities are not considerably better than the competitors but it is much better at organising documents in my opinions and it has apps for both the iPhone and the iPad.
Has everything I want.
Ulysses is a joke, it doesn't support markdown code block, it's just a "document organizer"
I'm pretty happy writing markdown notes with https://usecanvas.com/ which has online collaboration
Seconded. For offline I use iA Writer.
I use MacDown :)
Here is list of awesome markdown editors. I prefer iA Writer.
I like Bear for notes but iA Writer all the way for longform.
I tried Bear and liked it but coming from iA I just couldn't get into it.
- for Notion
Definitly a go for notion.so I use it every day for projet management to note taking, to design documentation or even internal wiki. Very useful and powerful !
There is no shortage of text editors for MacOS, yet I continually come back to TextEdit. It’s fast, simple, open source, and every Mac has a copy preinstalled. Go pick out a nice monospaced font, and I think you have a challenger for even the most minimalistic of writing interfaces.
MacVim + a bunch of plugins to make it function and look more like iA Writer.
I use Simplenote. It's cross-platform (seriously, its on everything!), has a great UI in both the app & on the web with light & dark mode editing, backs up your notes online and is developed by the Automattic team.
Many say they use their text editor, but doesn't have to mean always. I personally use this: http://www.coreldraw.com/en/pages/docx-file/ instead of the one integrated in my system, and I see many people nowadays do the same thing.
Without a doubt TextKraft Pro.
I've used a bunch, migrated from iA Writer to Simplenote to Notes.app, but for writing I started using Author.
I/A Writer is really good. But I also enjoy typing over Sublime Text 3 or Atom.
I am using Bear.
I love Mou, simple and you can preview on the right.
I'm Curious what the use case is for a tool to only write markdown in? I use sublime text because I'm often building/implementing my designs and continually fixing stuff that our dev team pumps out.
I'm using Bear. It's super cute, simple as hell, cross iOS and macOS.
Ulysses for personal files and notion.so for work and collaboration
iA Writer for longform writing, but quick notes go into nvAlt on desktop or Simplenote on iOS, which sync together perfectly.
I purchased Quiver a while a go but hardly use it (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/quiver-programmers-notebook/id866773894?mt=12).
I seem to just stick to Sublime Text now, using this package - https://github.com/SublimeText-Markdown/MarkdownEditing
My usual text editor, isn't that the point.
I use Ulysses for the "serious" documents, and Mou for the one shot/simples ones.
Byword for single files, Ulysses for anything bigger. Both great!
I use Evernote.
Typora, Bear, Alternote, Dropbox Paper
MacDown and Sublime Text.
