Mou is a Markdown editor... with a difference. Where most, if not all, currently available Markdown editors are almost all for general writers, Mou is different: it's for Web developers. Syntax highlighting, live preview, sync scroll, fullscreen mode, auto save, powerful actions, auto pair, custom themes and CSS, HTML and PDF export, enhanced CJK support. I know, it's exactly the app you want.

Absolutely brilliant and beautiful app. I use Mou for planning almost all my projects. Great for prepping notes for TeamworkPM, our project management tool. You can trust Mou not to crash (very important in a note taker/planner). Mou makes my life better. I too am using the Snow Leopard version.

I've tried every markdown editor for Mac I can find, and Mou is simply the best -- supports the widest variety of markdown flavors (Github Flavored, Multimarkdown) and offers you some options like use spaces instead of tabs to indent that I couldn't find anywhere else. Superbly easy and pleasant to use.

This is an excellent piece of software and I use it to edit webpages and web lecture notes for classes I teach. For those who uses heavily mathematical formulae (using MathJax) I suggest to disable mathematics in Mou and instead load MathJax with their own custom options directly.

I believe that synchronization (in the same manner as modern TeX front views implement; but I am not aware of any markdown editors with this capacity) would transform Mou from "excellent" into "great" application: command-clicking on some place in the text window would automatically bring into focus the corresponding place in the preview window and command-clicking on some place in the preview window would automatically bring into focus the corresponding place in the text window.

Though it's not evident from the developer's site, the Snow-Leopard -supported version is still available at:

http://mouapp.com/download/Mou_0.6.6.zip

I wish developers would make their older versions' downloads evident on their web page, so one doesn't have to go on a circuitous google search to find it.

I can't believe that now I launch it just to stare at it... standing there. What kind of sorcery is this??

i'm no developer or writer but just recently learned the markdown basics to post on a forum.

out of curiosity, i tried writing markdown in bbedit, nvalt, byword, ia writer and mou and they all fulfill my really basic editing needs.

strangely, mou is the only app that gives me a warm feeling and puts a stupid smile on my face, while using it. it's like it's made of drugs or candy or something. i can't explain the lure.

since i already use nvalt, i really don't need an extra app but... i just can't uninstall mou... the lure... too strong... must resist... before... it's too late...

This app convinced me to learn Markdown.

An option to show the HTML source instead of (or in addition to) the rendered preview would be nice for a Markdown beginner like me!

Does anyone know how to permanently disable "Check Spelling While Typing"? I have turned off "spelling auto-correction" in System Preferences, but apparently this doesn't change anything in Mou.
