If you need something fun to do, check out this awesome new project that was just launched yesterday. It's fresh off the cooker still so go easy on the developer!
A brand new self hosted markdown editor is here! It's fun, collaborative and completely open source. This is Let's Markdown!
- Live collaborative markdown editing and preview
- VSCode-like editor with support for command palette (syntax highlighting, autocomplete, editor themes...)
- Minimal setup with no login required - say goodbye to malicious trackers and privacy invasions
- Efficient backend built with Rust and WebAssembly
- Dark mode (duh)
- Emoji support with shortcuts enabled
- (Upcoming) cursors tracking, synced scrolling, subscript/footnote/insert support, and more
Check out Let's Markdown on Github and if you find it useful, be sure to give it a star!
What was the ambition behind Let's Markdown?
I want to edit markdown files with my friends, but sending/resending files, changing viewing access, version control, and previewing are just too much work.
💡 why not create a google doc for collaborative markdown editing, without having to log into Google, change view/edit access, worry about previewing the file, etc?
Voilà, after hours of laborious coding, LetsMarkdown.com is born!
Install Let's Markdown using Docker
Spin it up real quick using the following Docker command:
docker run --rm -dp 3030:3030 cveinnt/LetsMarkdown.com
Final Notes and Thoughts
I sent a link in my discord to try it out from the Let's Markdown demo page. At one point there was 4 of us on the page together playing with markdown and having a good ol geeky time!
Let's Markdown is in very early stages and ships with a Docker image to boot. It's very easy to self host and get up and running. It kind of reminds me of Hedgedoc but it's much simpler and seems lighter too.
