    Obsidian vs Typora opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments
    cy6ernauti1us

    Same reason as why Joplin is not similar -- Obsidian is also not similar to Typora because it's another note-taking software, which, even though it stores it's notes in markdown format, is not a full-fledged markdown editor, unlike Typora which is.

    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.

    First of all it's free & open source, full WYSIWYG experience, tabbed document editing, and minimum-effort transition for typora users.

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

    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

    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).

    The problem with notetaking apps like Evernote or Apple Notes is that once you write a note, after a week you never look at it again. Without any organization, you're stuck praying that search will work for your future self.
