I like pandoc. I've been using Typora [1] for all of my writing, and it's decent, but a little slow.

What editor do HN folks use? I wonder if there's a leaner editor out there with an equally nice distraction-free editing interface. Thanks in advance!

Emacs and emacs ord mode, and then you can export to html5 latex/pdf, etc. My notes, calendar, todo, data science workbooks, etc all live in emacs org mode. Especially love the ability to call programs on the fly in my data science workbooks, so I can call R, Julia, python, and bash all in one place.

Asking what editor HN uses is a pretty loaded question, but it looks like there's a couple neo/vim plugins for live markdown preview. This one[0] says it can use pandoc as a backend. I'm pretty sure that emacs offers something similar, and org-mode may be worth consideration all on its own. I hear spacemacs and spaceneovim are nice.

I've been really enjoying the Caret beta -- https://caret.io/

Not free, but a real pleasure to use.

I tried Caret and loved it but had to uninstall because of the huge font size on equation renders in a math-heavy document. Is there a way to fix that? I tried to look but they don't have much documentation yet.
