Dillinger Online Markdown Editor

by Christopher Paul on May 20, 2013

For all my writing, I use a Mac or iOS device. For my MBP, I use Byword to compose and export to HTML and MarsEdit to publish. On iOS, I exclusively use Poster; If it weren’t for the occasional image and video embeds, I’d probably use it over my Mac 90% of the time.

On the few occasions I end up on a non-Apple computer, I can’t write. My workflow uses Markdown and I can’t or don’t want to install dedicated software on the Linux and Windows computers I come in contact with. Enter Dillinger.

Dillinger is an open source, online Markdown editor with some fantasic features like links to Dropbox and GitHub. It also has the standard export features that most editors have. It’s dual pane so you can see your formatted text as your type. It’s pretty amazing.

Dillinger was started by Joe McCann.
