    Neat concept of integrating markdown syntax and being able to visualize it too. There are a bunch of products that already do similar things, the best thing about DownAndUp is the "Up" part.

    Neat!

    You can take a look at logdown.com, their editor is similar like yours but more functional. This editor needs more feature, keep it up!

  • contestant

    It looks pretty good to me. Very complete from the looks of it. Could use a lot more styling to make the whole site pretty. But otherwise I like it.

      Hi Ben,

      Glad to know you like it! Gist functionality is on our product plan, but we had not completed it during contest. We'll set Gist functionality as top priority. Thanks for your encouragements!

    it is an interesting editor, but i am a heavy evernote user, quick hitter seems not so easy using, but it is a creative project.

      Hi Caesar,

      In fact, sync with Evernote is on our scheduled task list. We also work on UI improvements. Hope you will enjoy it more in the near future.

    I love a good markdown editor and one that syncs with my dropbox is even better. but I felt the full rich text editor was unnecessary for markdown authoring and even a bit confusing.

    Site didn't load and got a ssl error.

      The reason we use HTTPS, not HTTP, is that Dropbox OAuth requires HTTPS. We hadn't installed a SSL certificate yet. Ignore the error and you can use DownAndUp.
