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.

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.
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 after rendering. You can even take over the rendering tasks to incorporate non-Markdown languages.
Marked works with Scrivener, VoodooPad, MarsEdit, and other third-party apps, allowing you to use Markdown and see beautiful previews just about anywhere.

Marked 2 really makes fine tuneing markdown documents easy
I love writing in Emacs using markdown mode. Just write write write, without putting any significant thought in to formatting the doc, since markdown is so simple to do. When it comes time to render the doc and fine-tune the look, Marked 2 is really helpful for this. Its fast. It puts “here’s where the last edit was” markers in the side bar. It provides a pop-up table of contents to make navigating easy. Plus it has dozens of features I haven’t even begun to use yet.
Originally, I purchased this app only because I follow Brett Terpstra’s blog and wanted to give him a little support for all the great information I get from his blog. I guess I shouldn’t be surpried that I actually ended up using the app! Its one of those “it just works” kind of things.
I cannot live without this app
Marked 2 is an essential part of my workflow. My primary use is to convert iThoughts documents to beautiful and shareable text. I use Marked 2 every day. The developer is super responsive.
I use Marked 2 daily in my workflow to create any number of documents for my own reference and at work for customers. It's fast, easy, and the output is reliable.
