Simpledown

Simple down is a clean and simple markdown editor for the web.

You can read more about why I built this here.

Simpledown was built based off an example for Vue.js*, and features Marked.js and Solid.

update 1.2 Release Notes.

  • Dark Mode!
  • Vim Mode!
  • Switched font to Roboto Mono
  • Previously, when saving a markdown or html file, it would save as untitled. Now it prompts the user for a name.

update 1.1 Release Notes.


  • Added Syntax highlighting in the editor window. (for headings and html)
  • Added export HTML
  • Added some new shit
  • I can't even remember what I've changed.
  • I stopped using Vue I think?
  • ctrl-alt-shift (cmd-alt-shift) now brings up save menu.
  • pullquotes work better (aka they actually work)

  • It now immediately focuses on the editor when you bring it up.
  • It automatically saves your shit for you.
  • removed option to download as any extension, changed it to only download as markdown, keeping things simple.
  • the key to success is to have emoji support 🔑
  • inline code looks a bit prettier
  • tab support, cause some guy on reddit asked for it.
  • drag and drop files to the app should open them?
  • You should be able to share the URL and have the receiver view your notes. keyword: SHOULD.
Upcoming Features
  • Save to Dropbox (yes, still.)

A huge thank you to jbt.

My goal for Simpledown is to be a place you can easily just get to and start writing. No logins, no syncing, no backend. If that is something you want, I would recommend Draft.

Version 1 of Simpledown used Vue.js, but I have since replaced it with Vanilla JS and some extensions.
