About Typora

Typora ( is a fantastic markdown editor available for Windows, macOS, and Linux. The first thing you will notice is that the live preview is not a side-by-side split view like in other editors. You can use Typora both like a WYSIWYG editor (with many usual hotkeys like Ctrl+B for bold, Ctrl+I for italic, Ctrl+K for links) and as a text editor that you type the raw Markdown code into.

This is what the display looks like when the text cursor is inside the Markdown code for a link:

As soon as you move the text cursor outside the link, the Markdown code disappears:

Creating tables is an absolute highlight. You simply type the column headers in Markdown…

…press Enter, and you get an interactive table editor:

In addition to the solid core mechanics, Typora offers extensive export options (HTML, PDF, DOCX, and many more), theme support, and a constantly growing feature set while keeping the UI distraction-free.

Typora is a commercial product at a very fair price ($14.99 plus taxes for up to three devices, 15-day trial phase). And no, I am not paid to write this, I am just a happy user.
