After my previous adventure of Markdown editing with Kate, I took another look around for a cross-platform editor which can provide a similar outcome. Yes, I am aware Kate runs on non-Linux platforms, but that’s the topic of another blog (or 10).
I was gravitating towards JEdit which is a fine open source project and very mature. But I thought I might as well keep looking for something new which led me to Atom – a relatively new open source project from GitHub.
Atom not only has Markdown syntax highlighting but a module for previewing the HTML output right in the editor – nice!
Atom is one of those fancy new cross-platform apps.
