      What are some alternatives to MacDown and Typora?
      Mou
      When current available Markdown editors are almost all for general writers, Mou is different: It's for web developers. Syntax highlighting, live preview, sync scroll, fullscreen mode, auto save, powerful actions, auto pair, custom themes and CSS, HTML and PDF export, enhanced CJK support.
      Atom
      At GitHub, we're building the text editor we've always wanted. A tool you can customize to do anything, but also use productively on the first day without ever touching a config file. Atom is modern, approachable, and hackable to the core. We can't wait to see what you build with it.
      Caret
      Better Markdown Editor for Mac / Windows / Linux
      Remarkable
      Markdown parser done right. Fast and easy to extend. Supports the CommonMark spec + syntax extensions + sugar (URL autolinking, typographer).
      Marp
      Marp is the simplest presentation writer with Markdown.
