A Markdown editor and hypernotebook built around CommonMark, with 1Password integration, HTML/CSS/Bootstrap support, live task lists, smart drag-n-drop insertion, multiple themes, document aliasing, and more.
Taking notes, writing blog articles, managing all the technical details of your websites and projects -- these are just some of the things _Versatil Markdown_ can be used for.
## Feature Overview
### Display First
Meaning if you're not editing the text, then it's being displayed rendered, making it easy to read and reference.
### Markdown/CommonMark Syntax
Built on the emerging _CommonMark_ specification and enhanced with GitHub Flavored Markdown, you get all the normal Markdown goodness, plus **task lists** and **tables**.
### Multiple "Source" Folders
Easily add all your notes -- maybe a set of blog posts in our Documents folder, notes for work and various projects in your Dropbox or iCloud Drive.
### HTML/CSS/Bootstrap 4 Supported
Embedded HTML and CSS is also supported. For the true power user, you can utilize the embedded Bootstrap 4 framework
### "Live" Task Lists
Task lists are "live" - click on the checkbox and it will be marked in the source document. Create a list of todos and check them off one by one as they get done, without having to directly edit the document.
### 1Password Integration
If you use _1Password_ to store your logins to various websites, you can easily create a link to one of these sites, by simply dragging an item from 1Password into the editor window.
### Integrated Spark File
An easy way to chronicle and capture thoughts or ideas through the creation of _sparks_. Each spark is stamped with a date and time and kept in chronological order, so you can quickly browse through them.
### Syntax Highlighting
### Smart Drag/Drop
Drag a link or an image from your browser into your text, and have it inserted as a proper link or image, including the title for the link.
### Document Aliasing
Sometimes information belongs in more than one place; create an alias to virtually place a note in any section/folder where it needs to be.
### Dark Mode and Multiple Themes
_Normal_, _Solarized Dark_, and _Solarized Light_ themes for display and editing are provided, or create your own customized themes, whether it's making a small tweak to an existing theme or creating something entirely new. A "Dark Mode" is also provided.
### Multiple Columns
Sometimes, it makes sense to have multiple columns for your notes/data. With a simple syntax, easily create new rows and columns. Simple and unobtrusive.

Ratings and Reviews
Markdown with a "EXTRA"
I'm a web designer, so for me to have a Markdown editor with the ability to use Bootstrap is simply fantastic. Now I can do some thought experiments about a web layout already in my editor. How cool is that?
"Display first" is a big downside
The app is actually really nice - good rendering, good documentation, the editor is solid, and being able to use real HTML in notes is great - but having to re-toggle edit mode every. single. time. you want to change a note is a huge downside. It should remember the last state that you had each note in, or have a global setting for it.
Well designed, feature rich and well documented app. Developer is very responsive to queries.
For tables I still go to Typora.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
