Given the ever increasing popularity of the Markdown format for easy writing, I decided it was time for WordPress to share some of the love. So today I’m announcing the release of the Typewriter WordPress Plugin. Typewriter simply replaces the Visual Editor with a simple Markdown editor for your posts and pages.
For a more technical explanation, Typewriter removes the TinyMCE editor and defaults to a Markdown specific “Text” editor and parses the output using MarkdownExtra.
