Marked is an app which allows you to preview your Markdown (in any flavor) as you write in your favorite text editor. It tracks your file changes and updates the preview as you go, even automatically scrolling to the point in the file where you're currently working. Version 1 is a solid application, but version 2 expands the feature set greatly. Marked 2 includes a rewrite of the file watching system for speed and accuracy. It speeds up just about every part of the app, making it even easier to get your work done without worrying about how it's going to look or waiting for your preview
What's New
Version 2.2:

Performance:

  • MultiMarkdown 4.4
  • Clean up temporary watcher files when the window closes
  • Memory management tweaks
Fixes:
  • Fixed an issue where apps with Autosave would stop updating when launched with ⌘E from Marked
  • Fixed an issue where renaming or moving a file would result in a File Type Fail
  • Fixes for Keyword and Export drawer animation
  • Video in Welcome popup plays now
  • Fixed crash when canceling word repetition processing
Improvements
  • If ⌘E is used and no default external editor is selected, offer to let the user pick one.
  • Keyword drawer design update.
  • Smoother animation and scrolling for Zoom feature
New features:
  • Create blank new files and optionally open them in external editor automatically That's right, ⌘N does something now. No, Marked is not planning to be an editor, but it now allows you to start a new document and open it in both Marked and your text editor from one place.
  • Added the ability to save a Clipboard (⌘⇧V) Preview
    • Use the Save Clipboard Preview command in the File and Gear menus
    • When pressing ⌘E (Edit in External Editor) on a Clipboard Preview, before opening the editor it will allow you to save it to disk.
    • If you don't manually save a clipboard preview, it's considered transient and is cleaned up when the window closes. No annoying "Unsaved" warnings and no more UUID strings in the recent files menu.
  • "Quick Toggles" in App Menu for global preferences that you may want to switch on and off quickly. Some of these may become per-document settings, but for now affect all open documents on refresh
CriticMarkup:
  • CriticMarkup Preview toolbar now shows the correct word count for each tab
  • Detailed Info palette now shows correct stats for the current tab
    • I said it would be too hard to do, but I figured it out the same day the support request came in. Yay…
  • ⌘ navigation for CriticMarkup Tabs
Book formats and multi-file documents: I've been feeling that Marked's book format and multi-document capabilities aren't fully appreciated, so I took some time to improve on a few points. More to come, along with a screencast.
  • Updates for Leanpub authors
    • handle Book.txt files without older "frontmatter:" requirement
    • Clean up tokens
    • X>l block support coming, as well as handling for code block format specifiers
  • In documents using include syntax or in index files (Leanpub/mmd_merge):
    • turn on Show Boundaries Of Included File in the gear menu (^⌘B) to place a line on the left side of your preview showing where various included files start and end, including support for nested and repeated includes.
      • Hovering over the bar will show you the name of the file it represents, and clicking will open that file in the default external editor.
    • Press ⇧I within a preview to see which included file is currently visible in the viewport. Pressing Return after showing the filename will open it in your external editor.

Version 2.2:

Performance:

  • MultiMarkdown 4.4
  • Clean up temporary watcher files when the window closes
  • Memory management tweaks
Fixes:
  • Fixed an issue where apps with Autosave would stop updating when launched with ⌘E from Marked

I write everything in markdown, and Marked is best viewer with any MD editor. The combination of MultiMarkdown2 + Marked is my preferred writing platform for most writing projects. Marked exports in various formats, multi-feature. Responsive developer.

Ok, I understand what Marked is made for, now, though I read some review that are not so clear. But… I really don't understand the difference between Marked and Marked 2, unless one is on the MAS and the other's not.

So what do Marked 2 does that Marked does not?

Marked is the kind of application that made Unix great: it does a handful of things well, and thus works well as part of a larger tool chain, which in this case includes one's text editor, file browser, and perhaps other programs for viewing output if one exports to RTF, HTML, or PDF.

All the other apps directed toward Markdown usage are basically trying to be an IDE for a .md format that doesn't need that AT ALL: they're basically Rich Text input fields with editing widgets of varying complexity, and they save to a plain-text .md file.

These other editors are doing precisely the wrong thing for people who already LIKE their plain-text editor of choice, and want to work in that editor as much as possible. If I'm working in Sublime Text or TextMate or BBEdit, I just want to be able to compile the .md file and preview it easily. That's it. Once it's where I want it, then I might want to save it as a real HTML file, or as a PDF.

Or, working in the other direction, let's say I want to preview an existing .md file from the Finder (or, in my case, Path Finder). Marked comes with services that let you preview from the context menu or with a hotkey. Then, if you look at it in Marked and decide you need to edit it, you can hit cmd-E, and Marked will pop the file open in your editor of choice, which gives you a robust set of editing tools, rather than the stripped-down offerings of the dedicated Markdown editors.

That's pretty much all Marked does. It supports the *correct* Markdown workflow for people who already use a dedicated text editor as the core of their development, regardless of language. (I.e., most people who write code.)

If there's any problem with Marked, it's that the appearance of Marked's preview only changes when the source file is saved. This is how it was for me, when I started learning to code HTML in Xemacs back in the mid-90s, so it doesn't seem like a burden. But I gather there are people who really demand real-time updating. This won't do that.

This is how markdown should actually be used!

I don't need yet another special editor, I already use vim and I want to work with ANY editor I happen to like. Marked is no editor and that's a good thing. It just shows a (floating) window which is updated whenever you save, scrolling to the area you just changed.

Marked has made me an instant fan of markdown. I'm now using it for all my technical documentation.

I'm still having to use 10.6.8. Disappointed that version 1.4 requires 10.7

Great way to easily view multimarkdown, can be automated for many apps (I use it with ever awesome Scrivener and Multimarkdown Composer), though I'd like a way to do this without fiddling for Brett's other app, nvAlt!

But I *hate* the damn app store! Currently though I've bought Marked and use it at work I cannot download it on my home machine, it always silently fails...
