The last Markdown editor, ever.

branch: master


Dillinger is a cloud-enabled HTML5 Markdown editor.

  • Type some Markdown text in the left window
  • See the HTML in the right
  • Magic

Markdown is a lightweight markup language based on the formatting conventions that people naturally use in email. As John Gruber writes on the Markdown site:

The overriding design goal for Markdown's formatting syntax is to make it as readable as possible. The idea is that a Markdown-formatted document should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it's been marked up with tags or formatting instructions.

This text you see here is actually written in Markdown! To get a feel for Markdown's syntax, type some text into the left window and watch the results in the right.




Dillinger uses a number of open source projects to work properly:


git clone [git-repo-url] dillinger
cd dillinger
npm i -d
mkdir -p public/files/{md,html,pdf}
