CodiMD lets you create real-time collaborative markdown notes. You can test-drive it by visiting our CodiMD demo server.
Note: CodiMD is in the process of changing its name to HedgeDoc.
It is inspired by Hackpad, Etherpad and similar collaborative editors. This project originated with the team at HackMD and now forked into its own organisation. A longer writeup can be read in the history doc.

Installation / Upgrading
You can run CodiMD in a number of ways, and we created setup instructions for all of these:
Theres two main ways to configure your CodiMD instance: config file or environment variables. You can choose what works best for you.
CodiMD can integrate with
- facebook, twitter, github, gitlab, mattermost, dropbox, google, ldap, saml and oauth2 for login
- imgur, s3, minio, azure for image/attachment storage (files can also be local!)
- dropbox for export and import
More info about that can be found in the configuration docs above.
To use CodiMD, your browser should match or exceed these versions:
- Chrome >= 47, Chrome for Android >= 47
- Safari >= 9, iOS Safari >= 8.4
- Firefox >= 44
- IE >= 9, Edge >= 12
- Opera >= 34, Opera Mini not supported
- Android Browser >= 4.4
Backup/restore your instance
To backup codimd, you should:
- backup your database
- backup your custom config file if you have one
- backup the upload folder (see the uploadsPath config directive)
Restoring an existing instance of codimd is then just a matter of restoring these elements.
Our community has created related tools, we'd like to highlight codimd-cli which lets you use CodiMD from the comfort of your command line.
