Writr :: Simple Markdown Writer
Writr is a simple editor geared towards writing of Markdown syntax formatted text. I wrote it and now you test it. Fair, no?
NOTE: I don’t maintain Writr anymore. Consider it abandonware :-)
- Be simple and obvious to use
- Suck less than Notepad
- Teach me PyGTK
What works now

- File opening and saving
- HTML previews after Markdown conversion of text
Still to come
The following things, listed roughly in order of priority, will show up in future releases.
- Undo and Redo
- Search and Replace
- Status bar that shows some status
- Win32 binary
- World domination FAQ
Writr needs Python and a fairly recent release of PyGTK to run. It also depends on python bindings for GTKHTML2 which currently ship with gnome-python-extras.

Thanks to all the people behind Python, PyGTK, and Python Markdown. Special thanks to the Scribes project from where I took lots of ideas and a bunch of code. Finally, big thanks to Sandino Flores for writing SimpleGladeApp and dozens of PyGTK example programs.
