What is PileMD?
PileMd has a really beautiful Markdown Editor, looks like Preview. It's like a RichText Editor but it's actually Markdown, and it works like a word processor, complete with Undo/Redo histories, list completion and clickable urls. Most of the features have keymaps too, to keep the focus on writing.
Last release was in 2016, still available from the website.

I tested PileMD on both Windows 10 and Arch Linux with no issues using the desktop version. Unfortuantely, as I do not own a Mac, I am not able to verify how well the OS X version performs. The ability to move your sync folder elsewhere is very nifty, especially if you want to change how you do your system backups, or just move to a different cloud platform. Because of this feature, it can sync with any cloud service that allows you to pick your own folders to sync, i.e. Dropbox, Google Drive, Pcloud, etc. PileMD also allows for folders (called Racks) and sub folders of content. This is great for the organizer who uses editors like an actual tabbed notebook of sorts. There aren't many options but it does allow for notes to be shared via Qitta (a collaboration platform, think GitHub). This is not something that I have used, so anyone looking to chime in on that would be great. I am an avid user of markdown notes and Laverna is currently fitting the bill for me, along with Cherrytree for other tid bits of notes I choose to take. PileMD doesn't have very much attraction so it's very likely that this project could die soon, however if it does not, I can see this taking a spot in my useful tool box of note taking programs.
All in all, I am having a blast with PileMD and wish the success to this project!
