Distraction-free Markdown editing for the web
This extension launches a full-page syntax-aware Markdown editor, with instant preview, for any plain textarea on the web. Default or Vim keymaps are supported.
Usage: While on a page with a plain textarea, activate the editor with the browser button or Alt-Shift-H. When finished, hit the button or keyboard shortcut again. If you prefer vim, you can turn it on in Options. While in vim mode, :q or :wq will close the editor. You also always close the editor with the same keyboard shortcut you used to launch it. Hit the other keyboard shortcut (Alt-Shift-L) to toggle instant preview on and off.
Tip: You can change the keyboard shortcuts to whatever you want. See the "Keyboard Shortcuts" link at the bottom of your extensions list in Chrome.
Note: This extension is designed to work primarily with *plain* textareas that don't already have rich text editing capabilities. Using it on already-rich textareas, such as those found on Github, is not supported.
