Bear is a nice piece of software. A markdown editor dedicated to taking notes. For this purpose, it doesn’t focus on the “rendering”; instead, it attempts to make the markdown syntax as appealing as possible, through some clever theming. But it does allow inter-file linking (a lá Wiki style) and hashtags categorisation:
Now, Atom is my editor of choice, and I have it the way I want. So, my first attempt was to reproduce Bear in Atom. There are a lot of markdown packages out there, but most of them provide a second “rendering” pane instead of doing things “inline”. I believe that for most of the things (different display of Headers, Lists, etc, etc…), one can resort to some CSS hacks. Figures, on the other hand, are a different beast. Same goes for file linking and hashtags, which might require specific plugin logic.
So here’s my question: is there any set of packages out there one can use to reproduce Bear on Atom, or, alternatively (and before I start writing my own), do you guys believe everything Bear gives can be done with an Atom package?
