I am energized about this new way to blog using Jekyll that I have asked others to help me find a better markdown editor. I’ve been using Visual Studio Code that gives you a side by side comparison of the code and the rendered version which is pretty cool but still doesn’t seem fluid enough.
I coworker pointed me to Typora. It is a WYSIWYG editor where you write in markdown and the style of your code is formatted realtime. The tool supports keyboard shortcuts and other nice helper functions to help you focus on the content instead of the styling.
I will be testing out the tool as I go and hopefully write up a followup with more details on the tool. So far my feedback is positive. By the way, I wrote this post using the tool.
