Marked 2 is a previewer (*not an editor*) for Markdown, MultiMarkdown and other text markup languages. It updates live every time you save your document in your favorite text editor, comes with writing analysis tools, and is powerfully flexible.

See what's new:

Marked provides document navigation and statistics, proofreading tools, multiple export formats, and much more. Marked comes with 9 preview styles built in (including GitHub), and you can add unlimited custom styles of your own.

MultiMarkdown processing is provided for writers, complete with tables, footnotes, file transcludes, and other MultiMarkdown-specific features.

GitHub users will appreciate Marked's built in GitHub Flavored Markdown processor, capable of handling fenced code blocks, line break preservation and automatic hyperlinking.

Marked is powerful enough to allow custom processors (shell scripts) before and/or instead of the built in processors, allowing custom Markdown processing and use of non-Markdown text processors.

Marked works with Scrivener, Ulysses, MarsEdit, Highland 2, iThoughtsX, MindNode, and other third-party apps, allowing you to use Markdown and see beautiful previews just about anywhere.

The best solution for writing documentation

I tried many "Markdown Editors" and found them all lacking; neither the editors nor the markdown displays worked well. One of them requires your work to be on iCloud to render properly (whoever thought that was a god idea?). Here's the perfect solution: edit your markdown document with xcode (it has line numbers, and that makes moving around easier), and concurrently display it with Marked 2. Marked 2 updates whenever a save is done, and xcode saves the document every few minutes (assuming the option to do so is on). Also, it has a better rendering engine. It's truly a beautiful solution. Marked 2 is well worth the money. I just wish I had discovered this solution sooner.

The Must-Have Companion for Markdown Documents!

Markdown is the simple way to format your plain text quickly and efficiently for whatever your ultimate destination may be. And Marked 2 is the perfect companion app to display your Markdown output, export it to other formats like rich text and pdf, or to print out your writing for further review or distribution. It does all this and more in whatever writing application you choose to use.

The developer is also constantly improving the app by adding new features and ensuring that it functions flawlessly.

Marked puts you in charge of Markdown on the Mac!

Inspiringly great

Sure, it has great Markdown previews, but it really shines because of its well-explained and well-organized options. Exploring them can unlock capabilities you probably don't know about: equations, text folding, application integrations, and proofing. Brett has continually tended to Marked for many years and it shows. Whether reading alongside your primary editor or exporting, you won't be disappointed.
