Hey Chris & Community! :)

What text editor are you using for the GoRails Forum post?

Im following the episode Markdown and Emoji with the html-pipeline gem. But im trying to add the top navbar to make it easier to add markdown for non-technical users.


Hey Lauro,

If I'm not mistaken, I believe he's using SimpleMDE - https://simplemde.com/


Yessir, using SimpleMDE. I'm fairly happy with it, although there are a few odd things it does like when you hit tab it makes things code blocks and I expect it to highlight the Comment button.

There's an episode on this that I made about Turbolinks + SimpleMDE: https://gorails.com/episodes/turbolinks-simplemde-markdown-editor?autoplay=1


And related thread on the topic as well: https://gorails.com/forum/simple-mde-duplicates#forum_post_3488

There's the code I use on GoRails which I think is working pretty well. I had to do a window popstate clean up as well in addition to the turbolinks before-visit event.


Thanks Jacob!

Awesome Chris! I will take a look.
