Plain text wysiwyg-like editor for html/markdown export.
There are no formatting toolbars or separate preview panes - what you write is instantly formatted as you type. So headings will look like headings, and code will look like code.
Marklight is a syntax and editor coupled together. It's designed for easy reading and writing, as well as for efficiency. It allows for fallback to HTML or Markdown.
Marklight was created as a solution to writing in HTML. Its uniqueness comes from it being a combination of a syntax (based on Markdown) and an editor, with incredible syntax highlighting.
One of Marklight's goals is the same as Markdown's:
The overriding design goal for Markdown’s formatting syntax is to make it as readable as possible.
However, a good syntax is only part of the solution - the editor, especially the syntax highlighting, also matters. With Marklight, the syntax and editor were built for each other, resulting in an even better writing experience.
Another goal was to make it as efficient as possible, without compromising on readability. The syntax requires as little repetition as possible, and the editor ensures that there's no repetive markup required whatsoever.
Give it a try - it's free, there's no signing up, and there's no waiting: Go to editor!
