I often need to convert rich text copied from websites or Word/odt documents to Markdown, and sometimes vice versa. Is there an open source Markdown editor that lets me simultaneously paste in and edit a document both as WYSIWYG and Markdown source code? Preferably side by side.

I’ve actually been using the Reddit redesign’s Markdown editor for this, since it lets me switch between a WYSIWYG text box and a Markdown source code editor, but that’s obviously not at all a good option.

Take a look to this editor: ghostwriter https://wereturtle.github.io/ghostwriter/

I like retext.

typora and marktext both source and render in place modes.

How about Apostrophe?

All of the choices mentioned here work quite well. I use ghostwriter (well, I use just a text editor most of the time for speed) because it is available in the repos on debian without adding an extra repo. Typora is very nice but it is a little heavier. I vote to give each one a trying out and see which one you like best.

All about open source! Feel free to ask questions, and share news, and interesting stuff!
