Contributing to Markdown Writer

Thanks for taking the time to contribute!

The following is a set of guidelines for contributing to Markdown Writer.

Submitting Issues

  • Include the version of Atom and the Operating System you are using.
  • Include reproducing steps, screenshots or animated GIFs whenever possible; they are immensely helpful.
  • Include the behavior you expected and other places you've seen that behavior such as Vim, Sublime Text, Emacs, Xcode, etc.
  • Check the dev tools (alt-cmd-i) for errors to include. If the dev tools are open before the error is triggered, a full stack trace for the error will be logged. If you can reproduce the error, use this approach to get the full stack trace and include it in the issue.

Pull Requests

Issues and features are recorded in Issues. If your issues or wanted features are not listed, feel free to raise them for discussions.


  • Issues are tagged with bug. Issues always higher priority to solve.
