Great! Few minor quibbles. - Erato is a great little app, and is perfect in its simple execution. I moved from Marked app which kept crashing despite several attempts to fix it via their support pages. A few minor annoyances: - Does not render tables. - Does not render strikeout. As a whole the app is great, I hope it continues to get updated to fix these issues.

Simple - I love this app. I do a lot of writing that ultimately ends up in github. I was looking for an editor that used github flavored markdown and decided to give Erato a try. It’s simple and easy to use, and the preview was exactly what I was looking for.
