Nextcloud Markdown Editor

Extends Nextcloud text editing with a live preview for markdown files

Markdown Editor

Usage

Starting with Nextcloud 17, the Text app replaced the Plain text editor app. In order to use Markdown Editor, you must install and enable both it and Plain text editor.

To use Markdown Editor, simply open any file with an .md or .markdown extension.

Behaviors

dots

SCENARIO ONE

WITH MARKDOWN EDITOR, PLAIN TEXT EDITOR, AND TEXT APPS ALL ENABLED:

The Text app will still, by default, open .txt, .md, and .markdown files. However, you can override that behavior by clicking the three-dot dropdown menu for any .txt, .md, or .markdown file and choosing “Edit in plain text editor.” Using this method, Markdown Editor will open .md, and .markdown files while Plain text editor will open .txt files.

SCENARIO TWO

WITH MARKDOWN EDITOR AND PLAIN TEXT EDITOR ENABLED, BUT TEXT DISABLED:

Markdown Editor will open .md, and .markdown files while Plain text editor will open .txt files. It’s unnecessary to use the three-dot dropdown menu to invoke either.

Be aware: Disabling the Text app will also disable (but not delete) any Rich Workspace notes you may have created. These are the styled notes that appear above and before file lists. Re-enabling Text makes them visible again.
