Content, and content marketing, is critical today. Sometimes, though, the systems to create content get in the way, overwhelming users and offering too many options.
Simple, intuitive tools like Markdown Editor can make it easier to focus—to create sharp copy and to consistently use images and rich media.
The core philosophy of Markdown is focused on ease of use: be as easy-to-read and easy-to-write as feasible. If you have mastered web surfing, can type, and know how to copy/paste links to websites, you possess the technical skills you need to use Markdown Editor.
How Markdown Editor Works
Markdown Editor is a MODX Extra for creating content with Markdown. It parses Markdown-formatted text into HTML, and stores it as content for MODX websites.
Markdown Editor is great for creating articles, quick blogs, instructions, lists, and any other articles that require writing. It is also great for more technical documents like code tutorials because it supports Github Flavored Markdown, or “GFM”.
Markdown Editor requires
- MODX Revolution 2.3+
- PHP 5.4+
- Live preview
- Drag & drop upload
- Image cropper
- Full screen focused writing mode
- oEmbed through multiple services
- Resource suggestion on ctrl+space
- Parsing MODX tag in live preview
- Custom CSS for Manager preview
- Auto include GFM & Highlight on frontend
Markdown Editor uses several libraries to deliver an amazing experience when editing Markdown content.
When creating content, you can quickly insert a link based on MODX Resource page titles by pressing
space. This will show a list of matching pages below your cursor based on the next characters you type. Use the arrow keys and the enter key or mouse and click to choose the page. It will insert a properly formatted link to that page using the correct Markdown and MODX syntax.
