New Windows CommonMark Editor


#1

My attempt at a CommonMark editor for Windows. Feedback appreciated.


#2

I’ve added this to a new page for CommonMark applications:

@codinghorror - Since this is an application, not an implementation, could we have a new Application category and switch the category of this post to Application?


#3

OK that’s done, though the distinction between “application” and “implementation” seems pretty thin to me… surely every application will utilize some standard CommonMark implementation in C#, Java, C, Ruby etc?


#4

Perhaps “Implementation” should be renamed to “Parser Implementation” or “Library Implementation” for clarity.


#5
  • Implementation - library for other developers.
  • Application - complete software for end user.

"implementation" seems pretty thin to me… surely every application
will utilize some standard CommonMark implementation in C#, Java, C,
Ruby etc?

What I had in mind is that there’s a distinction between, say, writing
a new JavaScript library for parsing CommonMark (an implementation, as
I’d use the term) and writing a JavaScript program or library that
uses an existing parsing library (commonmark.js for example) to do
something else – a wiki, or an editor, etc.

First beta release today.


#8

#10

Probably the best application out there.

I wish it had a portable version.
Namely keep settings and preferences in the local folder (No use of the Registry or User folders).

Thank You.
