Realtime Markdown Editor

What is this?

Type your markdown into the box on the left and immediately see if on the box on the right. If you send a friend a link to this URL you both can edit the document at the same time!

How to use this?

Type anything after the slash in "https://realtimemarkdown.herokuapp.com/" and just start typing. If you don't feel typing in the address bar, feel free to go to one of these markdown pads:

How was this built?

This website uses the following to work:

  • Showdown - Converts markdown text to beautiful HTML
  • ShareJS - allows for realtime editing of this textbox
  • Node.js - backend framework
  • Redis - where we store our markdown documents
  • Twitter Bootstrap - makes everything a little prettier
