(I was only allowed to add two links to this post, so i posted the same post with links to write.as.)
I do love the simplicity of write.as and the markdown support. However, I find markdown support a little bit inconsistent and limited.
There are some inconsistencies in hos write.as interprets newlines in markdown, as can be seen in my markdown test post. Write.as treats both literal newlines and double spaces at end of line as newlines.
There are no support for description lists, nor footnotes. I have seen mentions of this on the forum that this belongs to extended markdown, but there are different flavours of “extended markdown”, for example:
- Pandoc’s Markdown (my preferred choice),
- Github Flavoured Markdown,
There are differences between them so when (if?) implementing “extended markdown” I guess a choice has to be made as to avoid a “Write.As Flavoured Markdown”.
