What is ghostwriter?
ghostwriter is a text editor using the Markdown syntax, available for Windows, Linux and macOS. Files created by ghostwriter are plain text files, editable even without ghostwriter on any OS whether on computer, mobile phone or other. This increased portability can make it very convenient for note-taking or document sharing.
ghostwriter provides a relaxing, distraction-free writing environment including a full screen mode and a clean interface. No longer do you have to look at your friend's stylish Mac OS X Markdown editor with envy.
Here is a list of its features:
Syntax highlighting of Markdown Navigation of document headings Full-screen mode Spell checking with Hunspell Keyboard shortcuts for quick editing Focus mode that highlights the current sentence, line, three lines, or paragraph Two built-in themes, one light and one dark Theme creator for custom colors and background images MathJax support to write math equations A Live word count A live HTML preview as you type Use of custom CSS style sheets for HTML preview Image URL insertion via dragging and dropping an image file into the editor Sundown processor built in for preview and export to HTML Interoperability with the following Markdown processors (if installed) for preview and export to popular document formats, such as PDF, ODT, and RTF
The best part is that ghostwriter is entirely free and open source. The developer has greatly benefited from free and open source software over the years and wanted to give something back to the community. As such, ghostwriter is distributed under the generous GNU General Public License v3.
