HelloEdit is a Markdown editor disguised as a Macintosh Classic-era word processor. It is modelled on Macintosh System 7 and Microsoft Word 5.1.
Below the hood HelloEdit is simply an (opinionated) wrapper for EasyMDE by Jeroen Akkerman. The rest of the editor is a small Express app, and files are stored in a simple lowdb database.
HelloEdit runs on my server! Remember, with great editing power comes great editing responsibility.
HelloEdit can be installed and used locally as a personal notebook or text editor. First, clone this repository to a local directory and navigate to it in a terminal, run
npm install, then run
npm start whenever you want to run HelloEdit.
Bookmark your important documents in a reliable way! While HelloEdit stores bookmarked documents in LocalStorage, this can easily be cleared by a user when removing history.
