Description from store Light Markdown Editor is a live editor for typing Markdown with a live preview in Google Chrome. lightmd does not rely on a backend. It does not send the content to any external server. lightmd is designed to be lightweight, not feature rich, while still providing some flexibility as a scratchpad. Preview supports three styles, None (browser default rendering), Github (inspired), and a custom lightmd style (seen in screenshot). lightmd allows for export to .md, HTML, and printing directly from the preview frame (must hit the Print button, not Ctrl+P). The extension stores your content while you type in the browsers local storage. It has 4 "slots" which can be swapped between as you wish. NB! Wiping browser local storage will wipe the contents stored in these editors! lightmd uses a JavaScript library for converting Markdown to HTML (markdown-js), which has some limitations. It only supports basic Markdown and does not support inline HTML. lightmd is open source and available on GitHub: https://github.com/jorgenys/lightmd
Latest reviews (2019-01-07) 阿狸: Bad support for Chinese, and the theme can not choose black (2016-04-01) Joel Dare: Looks great to me. I'll use it to keep random notes in my browser and to write an MD file on occasion. (2015-09-17) SHEN Sherlock: It's ok, but not support ''' syntax, which used to mark multi-line text as code.
