While working on the new, improved version of Tutorijali.net we have decided to use the WMD markdown editor. While using it, we have discovered that it has many annoying bugs, and isn’t easy to modify. Searching for a better markdown editor which is small, and doesn’t have external dependicies, yielded no results. So I decided to write a small, easy to modify, markdown editor.
Note: Uedit is no longer actively maintained
The result is Uedit, a markdown editor that Just Works in IE6+, Opera, Firefox, Chromium and Safari. Uedit supports automatic insertion of list items, and a custom state manager for fine control of undo/redo operations. Note that I haven’t tested it in IE9 since that means installing an instance of Windows 7 just for that purpose. Someone will test it eventually, and if you do please let me know if you find any bugs.
How to get it
You can download uedit packaged in a Zip file here. Or you can clone the repository at github.
Bugs, suggestions, patches
Please let me know if you find any bugs in uedit. I’m sure that I’ve made some. Suggestions are welcome, patches even more so. Just drop me a pull request on github if you have a patch ready.
Goran Zdjelar has helped with the design of uedit. He’s responsible for the nice forms design. Thanks!
