Comments about Mark Text as a Alternative to Typora
Very similar to Typora, but open source. Moreover it seems that Typora will not be free when the beta ends, while Mark Text will be free forever.10
Really looks like to Typora, but free.6
First of all it's free & open source, full WYSIWYG experience, tabbed document editing, and minimum-effort transition for typora users.0
Free and open-source, plus, it's seems more optimized (on Windows) than Typora.1
Fair but not completely. First of all one should be able to number and reference the equations in the text. The second thing is that I would like to be able to use a much darker and larger font (I figured out the latter but not the former)... Fantastic tool.0

Comments about Joplin as a Alternative to Typora
Joplin is focused in taking and organizing notes written in markdown, while Typora is a generic markdown editor.8
Joplin is a note-taking software whereas Typora is a markdown editor0
Its not a markdown editor, its a dedicated note taking enviroment1
As others said, while Joplin does include MD functionality, it is to use within itself not as a general editor. I don't even know if you COULD use this as a MD editor. Not conveniently for sure.3

Comments about Zettlr as a Alternative to Typora
Zettlr has almost every feature of Typora, but it can do even more. An example is the support to hyperlink to other notes in the same directory (so that it is possible to implement Zettelkasten).3
Zettlr is similar to Typora in interface and function, but has better features and is open source.2
more feature rich, in active development, one can link files (to reference things) and open-source (Typora is not)3
