Works with existing directories, or new ones. Reads .txt and .md just fine. Dark theme is nice too.

UI options are rather lacking, unfortunately. There's options for the sidebar, and you can zoom in/out to change the font size, in addition to the light/dark them, but that's about it. If you can tolerate never changing the font (a dealbreaker for me; I love my monospace fonts), this could be the program for you.


Thank you for your comment! The issue of changing fonts has been raised quite a number of times, so from the next version on Zettlr will indeed support customising this easily. Additionally, I plan to integrate a monospace-theme by default (but until then you will be able to use monospace!)

Zettlr (free & open-source) is an alternative to iA Writer (one-time purchase), that is an alternative to Ulysses (subscription-based).

It unnecessarily has to be Zettlr/iA Writer. Any text editor such as Sublime Text / Atom will do since they can read markdown. But you probably feel more like a programmer than a writer due to its interface.
