      Spout 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.

      Joplin appears to be a full-fledged OneNote or Evernote replacement, including database functionality. Typora currently weighs in at 24 MiB, while Joplin came in at almost 240 MiB (on macOS).

      ScenicMarathon 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.

      CrepeDeLaCrepe Free and open-source, plus, it's seems more optimized (on Windows) than Typora.

      daacosta 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.

      it's basically typora feature to feature with some more. besides it is way more polished and it's default themes are better. the table and image support seems more native and the tabs are less buggy, at least on mac os where the window size changes when you go from multiple tabs to one tab. and renaming a file doesn't reset when you switch tabs. It's implementation of latex is better but it at the trade off of not having syntax highlighting

      more feature rich, in active development, one can link files (to reference things) and open-source (Typora is not)

      taylregriffin Zettlr is similar to Typora in interface and function, but has better features and is open source.

      ScenicMarathon 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).

    5. No excuses. No distractions. Just write. ghostwriter is a feature-rich text editor using Markdown syntax which makes it suitable for note-taking, document redaction, simple HTML website creation and much more.

    7. The key to good writing is not that magical glass of Bordeaux, the right kind of tobacco or that groovy background music. The key is focus. What you need to write well is a spartan setting that allows you to fully concentrate on your text and nothing but your text.

      This alternative is disputed. FocusWriter is still a legitimate alternative to Typora, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      typora is a markdown editor, focus is not
