I love Evernote. It’s one of my favourite apps for taking notes. I use it either on the desktop and on the iPad. But I also love Markdown as it is the best language for writing for the web. Hell, Markdown should have been the original markdown of the web in the first place. Thus I grief when Evernote doesn’t have support for Markdown.
Markdown in Evernote todo list:
- Automatic syntax highlight. Although not important, it is a feature that I love in my Emacs Markdown mode.
- An export feature that allows me to export a markdown note to MD and HTML files. Also, a preview feature would be nice sometimes you forget that link text comes first than the url and a simple preview would solve that problem. Finally, a ‘send to blog’ would be cool.
- Emacs spoiled me. I love the fill-mode and it is surprising that so few editors have a similar feature. Most text editors implement some sort of Soft/Hard word wrapping, but none as done it in the same way as Emacs. Emacs fill-mode is perfect for Markdown.
These are 3 things instead of 2 about Markdown in Evernote, but I thought that I’d throw the last one as wishful thinking…
