MaNo (Markdown oriented simple text editor)

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

MaNo (Markdown oriented simple text editor)

#1 Post by Midas » Wed Sep 30, 2020 5:58 am

Couldn't find any mention of MaNo (http://mougino.free.fr/freeware/#MaNo) so here's my submission.

I tested it briefly and confirmed that portably packaged MaNo left no traces in my system.

MaNo is the Markdown Notepad; it is a lean editor for the Markdown language, it generates HTML and provides performance tools [...] MaNo is GNU GPL V3 open-source software, code available at GitHub. You can download a 'light' portable version or a full installer (with syntax highlighting support).

Alas, while I really appreciate the Markdown features, MaNo is lacking too many basic features that I value in a text editor to be of much use to myself in its present form -- e.g., no case changing, no date insertion, no URL activation, and no automagic HTML preview.

According to its Github (https://github.com/mougino/MaNo), the portable MaNo doesn't include the code highlighter (https://github.com/andre-simon/highlight) of the installer version, although the later is also FLOSS.

MaNo latest portable release (currently v1.1.0, released 2017-04-27) can be downloaded from http://mougino.free.fr/freeware/#MaNo.

Agree. When you use the built in browser preview option it creates an html file alongside the md file. So, technically not portable if you use that option as it leaves unecessary html files everywhere. Pity really. Nice little editor, thanks Midas. :)
