Customer Reviews

Great Markdown editor!

I was looking for an app that would make writing and previewing Markdown easy, for me and for my non-technical staff. This app fits the bill perfectly.

My favorite features:

* Github-flavored Markdown support
* The ability to edit and watch your changes appear as you type
* It tracks file changes, so you can edit in an external editor (I like Vim) and Erato will refresh when you switch back to it
* There’s also a preference setting that will sync the scroll position in the editor and the preview

Great app!
