Markdown Monster Portable

#1 Post by rbon » Sun Jan 10, 2021 12:30 pm

Markdown Monster Portable rel. 1.25.15.2 released at January 9, 2021
Changelog for this version: https://github.com/RickStrahl/MarkdownM ... angelog.md

From author site:
Better Markdown Editing for Windows
Markdown Monster is a Markdown editor and viewer that lets you edit Markdown with syntax highlighting and fast text entry.
A collapsible, synced, live preview lets you see your output as you type or scroll. Easily embed images, links, emojis and code using Markdown text or use our gentle UI helpers that simplify many operations with a couple of keystrokes.
Paste images from the clipboard or drag and drop from Explorer or our built-in folder browser. Inline spell-checking and word counts keep your content streamlined unobtrusively.
You can export your Markdown to HTML or PDF by saving to disk or by copying Markdown selections as HTML directly to the clipboard.
The HTML preview can display syntax colored code snippets for most common coding languages, and can easily be customized with HTML and CSS template to match your own sites.
You can choose from a light and dark app theme, and choose individual editor and preview themes that are fully customizable.
You can even use Vim or Emacs type conventions. Other convenience features let you browse for and select files in the built-in folder browser, use the document outline to jump through sections in your Markdown, or shell out to Explorer, Terminal or your favorite Git client.
It's all about convenience - everything is at your finger tips, but it's out of your way until you need it.
Weblog Publishing
Markdown Monster can also publish your Markdown directly to your Weblog. If your blog supports WordPress, MetaWeblog, Jekyll or Medium, you can publish your documents with one click.
You can also edit and republish, or download existing posts and even convert existing posts from HTML to Markdown.
Extensible via .NET
We also wanted to make sure the editor is highly extensible, so you can add custom features of your own.
Markdown Monster includes an addin model that makes it easy to build extensions that let you hook into the UI, the editor behavior and the publishing process.
We also provide useful Scripting and Text Templating addins that let you automate many tasks without creating an addin.
Find out more about creating an addin with .NET.

Not quite portable. Creates an empty directory at:
AppData/Roaming/Markdown Monster/

Nice software, but too much of a mess.
