Markdown, with preview as you write. Similar to Typora, except it's open source (and therefore more likeable, trustworthy and deserving of support). It deserves a point for supporting Windows, Mac and Linux. Mark Text needs the ability to drag-and-drop non-image files from local storage (not to the cloud) and the ability to store that in a local folder the user can sync for him/herself; then Mark Text wil be an absolutely killer productivity app to rival Bear, Boostnote and their ilk.

One bit of weirdness: you can seemingly drag-and-drop image files to the owner's private domain (loli.net). Firstly, the files going to loli.net don't seem to be encrypted, and therefore the owner can see those files. That's not good for the user's privacy and it's a million miles away from safe.

I love the WYSIWYG markdown edit mode (not dual-pane like most markdown editors - live preview in a single pane).
Marktext also has great syntax highlighting for all popular programming languages.
I also use the focus and distraction-free modes a lot.
An excellent, stylish, free and open source markdown editor.
