MultiMarkdown Composer

4.5.12
02 June 2019

Text editor built around the MultiMarkdown syntax.

Overview

MultiMarkdown Composer is a text editor specifically designed for writing in MultiMarkdown (or regular Markdown).

By using an editor built around Markdown/MultiMarkdown, you can focus on the *writing*, rather than worrying about formatting and styles. Composer's intelligent tools provide automatic support while you write -- organize your document with the Table of Contents, quickly insert links, images, etc. with the References sidebar, and quickly review CriticMarkup edits.

Features:
  • Read and write files
  • Intelligent editing support -- "smart pairs", automatic formatting of Markdown block structures (lists, blockquotes, tables), easily create links and images, and much more
  • Live HTML preview
  • Supports MultiMarkdown v6 (including regular Markdown compatibility mode)
  • Built-in support for MathJax and syntax highlighting javascript libraries
  • CriticMarkup support, including live change tracking and including your edits in the preview
  • Automatically cleans up Markdown formatting to quickly fix problems when copying text from other sources
  • Typewriter Mode to keep the cursor in the center of the screen
  • Auto Zoom to make the most use of the window, regardless of what size you make it
  • Sync MultiMarkdown metadata tags with macOS file tags automatically
  • File comparison -- compare two files and convert the differences into CriticMarkup to easily handle file revisions shared from other users

Note: This application contains in-app and/or external module purchases.

Not really free. In-App purchases are necessary to unlock certain features so you should better consider this as a Lite version. All-in-all I find the Lite version somewhat too light …

Download link displays one paragraph of code since 12-23. Developer's site download displays same code. Firefox & Safari have same issue. Thanks ... Ken

As if it weren't already a prize winner, there's now CriticMarkup, so those of us who compulsively tweak and re-tweak can easily keep track of our fussiness.

The update to V2 is effectively a completely new application. The new headline features are a very comprehensive style system which allows both editor and preview customisation, a preview system that works perfectly, and being able to restructure documents based on table of contents structure. There are lots of little refinement details and visual tweaks. And as I'm pretty forgetful, having a summary of all the multimarkdown formatting is a very welcome improvement. Apart from the brain-dead app store incapable of handling upgrades for V1 (not the developers fault), this is a really thorough and very worthwhile upgrade and IMO one of the best markdown inspired writing tools.

I entirely agree. My beef was 100% with the app store. All credit to Fletcher Penney, the developer, for finding at least a temporary lash-up to get round its imbecilic procedures - or lack of them. If that didn't come across in my post below, then it's my fault and I apologise. I'd have given it five stars but you can't star comments. So: MultiMarkdown Composer: * * * * * Mac App Store: *

A good example of where the Mac App Store falls over. MultiMarkdown Composer 2.0 announced on MU on Sunday 10 February. Only notification users (i.e. people who've bought it on MAS) get that there's an upgrade is by checking on MacUpdate. Well hooray. There's v2. So I head over to the MAS. "Composer Version 2 is on sale for a limited time . . . It returns to full price on February 11th. So don't wait -- buy it now!" Well, it's now 17:40 UTC on 11 February and it's not on sale any more. Gives a new sort of urgency to "limited time". You can get a non-sandboxed version from the MultiMarkdown Composer website which "respects" the MAS licensing for v1.n but beyond that you have to buy v2 from the MAS and then, thereafter, well, frizzle my scrattocks with a Paschal candle but i have NOT THE FAINTEST IDEA what happens after that. I *think* it means if you bought v1 you can use v2 but if you want to use v3 you'll have to buy v2. Sometime. Maybe now. Can't be after v3 comes out because then v2 will be withdrawn. And, oops, I don't mean "buy". I mean "rent". So it also gives a new meaning to "simple" as in "the MAS makes things simple". Damn good app. Fletcher Penney is a damn good developer. But this MAS channel lark is a real boojum up the wazoo, don't you think?

Yes, I had exactly the same experience, I immediately went to pay my "upgrade" price, only to find that Fletcher's discount for V1 users had already expired. Not Fletcher's fault, but the MAS is so incredibly annoying and this is certainly not easy at all for users who simply want to upgrade to a new version. I suspect most users simply won't have a clue V2 was released for quite some time, then balk at paying full price; this can't be good for developers! Fletcher does have a V2 download which works with a V1 licence for now, though won't get updates. I'd pay Fletcher directly, but I'm upset enough at MAS to hold off buying V2 for a bit (I'll buy soon as I'd still rather reward Fletcher for what is an excellent update rather be grumpy at Apple's braindamged software store).

Wonderful Multimarkdown (MMD) editor. For those who haven't come across it MMD is a neat extension of markdown with more useful features for writers. This program interfaces perfectly with MMD (both are from the same author) and provides a very elegant and simple writing interface. Well worth the money!
