Hey there - I’m looking to start a project to do two things:
Build my own “notes” environment - similar to this: https://notes.andymatuschak.org/About_these_notes
Learn how to use Node (bit of a n00b over here)
Basically I’m thinking of creating an app that:
- Edits files in the browser
- Saves them as markdown files
- Allows for some light dynamic features like auto-complete links when creating a link between two pages
I found this project:
I was thinking of following this project to get a feel for working with md files - but before I dive in I wanted to check if this tutorial will work with Glitch? Or is there a better base project that I should start with?
This seems compatible with Glitch. It looks very cool, I wish you the best of luck!
@tomcritchlow, I just built an online markdown converter to HTML, (see MarkMe! - A lightweight and simple markdown to HTML viewer and editor online for more info). I used a package called
All the best for your project, I’m looking forward to its completed version!
P.S.: The tutorial above does have a lot of unnecessary stuff. The markdown viewer I built is similar to the tutorial but with less code and more features.
This project doesn’t have in-browser editing, but supports serving a folder full of markdown files using node- would be good to build upon! https://glitch.com/~basic-md-site Hope it’s a useful start.
Amazing! Thank you Potch!
I’ll remix this and see where I get to.
