Marked 2 is a previewer (not an editor) for Markdown, MultiMarkdown and other text markup languages. It updates live every time you save your document in your favorite text editor, comes with writing analysis tools, and is powerfully flexible.

See what's new:

Marked provides document navigation and statistics, proofreading tools, multiple export formats, and much more. Marked comes with 9 preview styles built in (including GitHub), and you can add unlimited custom styles of your own.

GitHub users will appreciate Marked's built in GitHub Flavored Markdown processor, capable of handling fenced code blocks, line break preservation and automatic hyperlinking.

Marked is powerful enough to allow custom processors (shell scripts) before and after rendering. You can even take over the rendering tasks to incorporate non-Markdown languages.

Marked works with Scrivener, VoodooPad, MarsEdit, and other third-party apps, allowing you to use Markdown and see beautiful previews just about anywhere.

Simple, sleek, infinitely useful - Marked 2 must be used with a text editor, but this is a fantastic feature for me. I use Sublime Text 2 (which costs money) but M2 also coordinates well with TextWrangler (which is free). Use the text editor of your choice and easily convert Markdown files (and MultiMarkdown files) into HTML, or DOCX, or PDF files. There are a few apps out there that do what Marked 2 does, but for more money and greater inconvience. I bought this for the specificity and ease of use. To use you have to open Marked 2 and then open your Markdown editor through the app. Marked 2 is, at its core, a live HTML preview (with options for CSS changes) of the Markdown document you are working on (with other exporting and editing features). There is also a free 7 day trial on the Marked 2 website, but just remember to delete that if you decide to buy it from the app store. Reading through the documentation on the website is also a great help in finding all of the features of M2, such as the automatic generation of the Table of Contents.

Cannot even write with it! - No way to contact developer and cannot find any help, so forced to leave bad review. I have no idea what to use this app for. Apparently I am supposed to write in a different editor and preview in this one? Please, someone, explain in detail exactly how this app is supposed to work. Thanks.

Review by john0720

Marked 2 really makes fine tuneing markdown documents easy - I love writing in Emacs using markdown mode. Just write write write, without putting any significant thought in to formatting the doc, since markdown is so simple to do. When it comes time to render the doc and fine-tune the look, Marked 2 is really helpful for this. Its fast. It puts “here’s where the last edit was” markers in the side bar. It provides a pop-up table of contents to make navigating easy. Plus it has dozens of features I haven’t even begun to use yet. Originally, I purchased this app only because I follow Brett Terpstra’s blog and wanted to give him a little support for all the great information I get from his blog. I guess I shouldn’t be surpried that I actually ended up using the app! Its one of those “it just works” kind of things. Thanks Brett!
