A markdown editor for desktop


In Abricotine, you can preview your document directly in the text editor rather than in a side pane.

Abricotine is an open-source software based on modern web technologies (HTML5, CSS3 & Node.js).


  • Write in markdown (or GFM) and export your documents in HTML using templates,
  • Preview text elements (such as headers, images, math, embedded videos, todo lists...) while you type,
  • Use different themes to display your documents,
  • Display document table of content in the side pane,
  • Display syntax highlighting for code,
  • Show helpers, anchors and hidden characters,
  • Copy formatted HTML in the clipboard,
  • Write in a distraction-free fullscreen view,
  • Manage and beautify markdown tables,
  • Search and replace text,
  • Ligatures support (Fira Code must be installed on your computer),
  • And more features to come...

Abricotine is still in beta development. If you find a bug please report it in the dedicated bug tracker.
