FYI, a recently founded ad-hoc committee (where John McFarlane, creator of above mentioned Pandoc, displays prominently) has come up with a specification for Markdown, aptly named CommonMark.

Just found Haroopad markdown editor and looks pretty amazing:
http://pad.haroopress.com/user.html

It's not portable by default but can be made easily as it stores settings in "%LocalAppdata%\Haroopad".

I can't check its portability in depth but I will do that later and create a yaP launcher.

Update:
Seems that there are no settings outside %LocalAppdata%. yaP config is available here.

Wow, excellent find. 8)

Although I am not overly fond of the side-by-side preview layout, it does seem to be all the rage ATM...

I went looking for a preview (below) and found lot of content related to MarkdownPad2 -- are the two even connected?

Where do you see content related to MarkdownPad2? Anyway, I have no clue, I don't know anything about MDP2 :)

Today Haroopad saved me some time: copy text from a pdf (simple list), paste to Haroopad and copy HTML from the preview panel.

My GitHub readme's quality will certainly benefit from Haroopad, that's for sure :)

Abricotine is yet another OSS Markdown editor, available for Windows, MacOS and Linux; for further info, check http://abricotine.brrd.fr/ (latest version is v0.3.2, changelog and downloads at https://github.com/brrd/Abricotine/releases).

BTW, I posted a Markdown intro at http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/ ... 628#p66628 ...

FTR, I just came across instructions to make a PAF ReText (yet another Python based Markdown editor) at https://github.com/retext-project/ReTextPortable...

About Haroopad, there is a new Haroopad-v0.13.2-win-ia32-portable.exe (about 120 MB) file at Bitbucket- I haven't downloaded and tested it for portability. For the time being the is only a x64 Windows installer (Haroopad-v0.13.2-win-x64.msi).

Haroopad at Softpedia
Haroopad at AlternativeTo

I don't think so, there's no provision for portability and I couldn't find any further info -- I would've made a proper "Submissions" post if that was the case. With careful testing, I'm almost sure it could be yaPed eventually, but that's another story...

Interesting Abricotine related nugget by JohnTHaller:

:shock:

Ok, someone please explain this sorcery. More specifically, how the hell does one do that? I'd like to perform this magic on Typora as well as Abricotine!

Confusingly there seems to be a MMD2PDF v1.0 release announcement (dated 2013-09-10) at https://github.com/markgollnick/mmd2pdf/releases, but no download is offered -- meanwhile at https://code.google.com/archive/p/mmd2pdf/downloads, the latest version offered is still v0.9 Beta (although dated 2013-12-13!).

One has to wonder if the MMD2PDF project has been abandoned. Because that is a crying shame... :cry:

Finally managed to test this package but got nothing more than a consistent error whenever I try to run it: "Haroopad-v0.13.2-win-ia32-portable has stopped working...". It is identified as an "Enigma VirtualBox Application" by TrID, BTW.

Topic update: sadly, no new MMD2PDF release is in sight, so only adding a couple of relevant pointers of general Markdown interest...

Just noticed Boostnote (https://boostnote.io/), yet another Electron based Markdown editor...

EDIT: if you have a webserver environment available, Raneto might be your thing... (viewtopic.php?t=23494)
