Table of contents

We are super excited to announce the launch of our latest feature: the Markdown editor, designed to enhance your journaling experience with advanced text formatting options. We believe this addition will allow you to journal and document your mental health journey with ease and allow you to get as creative as you'd like to be.

What is Markdown?

Markdown is a simple way to format text using easy-to-remember symbols, making your writing look neat without complicated codes. Created by John Gruber in 2004, it allows writers to focus on their content rather than complex formatting.

Markdown is popular for its simplicity and efficiency, making it a preferred choice for bloggers, writers, and developers. It’s widely used for online documentation, readme files, and content creation because it’s easy to read in plain text and can be converted to HTML for web display; and now we're bringing it to stoic to help you journal better!

Why use Markdown to Journal in stoic?

There are plenty of reasons to use Markdown to journal, but we're adding it to stoic for two simple reasons:

1. Seamless Writing Experience: Focus on your writing while we ensure it looks tidy and professional.

2. Universally Accepted Format: Using Markdown not just allows you to export your journal entries better but also allows you to import your journal from other apps like Day One to stoic with ease.

Markdown Editor Highlights:

  • Enhanced Header Formatting: Automatic detection and formatting for headers (H1 to H6).
  • Text Styling: Easily apply bold and italic text styles.

Our Markdown editor provides an intuitive interface that caters to both simple and complex formatting needs. This first release integrates smoothly with Stoic's Focus Mode and AI capabilities, ensuring a more efficient and organized journaling process.

Upcoming Features:

  • More Styles: Including strikethrough, highlights, lists, and quotes.
  • Toolbar with Markdown Modifiers: Simplify your formatting tasks.
  • Embedding Assets: Integrate images, links, and other media for a richer journaling experience.

and so much more!
