A WYSIWYG rich-text editor for GitHub issues, comments and pull requests. Powered by CKEditor.
GitHub Writer is a WYSIWYG rich-text editor for GitHub. The extension is available when creating or commenting on issues, reviews, pull requests, and wikis.
It provides all the features available in the GitHub plain-text editor, including Markdown input. For features like tables, it offers a much easier experience in comparison to plain-text Markdown and allows users to be more productive. No more switching to the Preview tab to see what you write!
GitHub Writer is an Open Source project and your questions, feedback and contributions are always welcome.
# Installation Permissions
When installing the extension, you are asked to grant permission to access data in github.com and s3.amazon.com. Just like in the default GitHub editor, this permission is necessary so the extension is able to upload images inserted into the editor.
