About Adam Pritchard

  1. I have been working on adding the ability to revert a Note back to Markdown after saving. I'm not a big Evernote user, so I'd appreciate if anyone else can help test it. Info and instructions (or a link to instructions) here: https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/issues/85#issuecomment-39049287 Thanks. This will be in the next release (unless something is horribly wrong). Adam
  2. Once you save the Note, the information that Markdown Here needs to revert back to Markdown is lost. I/we have some ideas for how to deal with this: https://github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/issues/85 There isn't a great workaround. But if you just want to render *new* content in a pre-existing Note, you can do it by highlighting the new content and then trigger Markdown Here's render. You can see it in a screenshot here: https://raw.github.com/adam-p/markdown-here/master/store-assets/markdown-here-image2.gimp.png This is quickly becoming a high-priority item and I'm going to dig into it properly soon.

  3. I was delaying answering so that I could get a chance to test. But it looks like I'm not actually going to do that testing, so... I have no idea! I don't really know much about TinyMCE, and I don't know anything about its plugins. But if you (or anyone) learns anything, please let me/us know. Adam
  4. You're correct in principle: Evernote could certainly change their interface in such a way that Markdown Here stops working -- possibly even forever. But it's not really as fragile as that. Evernote -- and almost every other "rich edit" web thing -- uses an edit box with the "contenteditable" attribute set. When you click the Markdown Here button, it reads the contents of the box as plain text (Markdown), renders to HTML, and sticks the HTML back in the box. That's it. There is, of course, annoying variability between the way different sites use the edit box, but it mostly works. In fact, it works so well that I didn't actually target Evernote when I created it -- MDH was only targeted at webmail (Gmail in particular). But then I (and other users) discovered that it works in a lot of places. You can see the list of at-least-somewhat-compatible sites I've compiled here. Edited to add: And if/when Markdown Here does break... that just means you won't be able to use it anymore. It won't damage any notes you've already created with it. So the possible future breakage shouldn't dissuade you from using it (except that you'll be sad). Adam
  5. I just did some testing, and in Firefox there are too many blank lines appearing. This totally breaks tables and causes extra lines in code blocks. Is that what you're seeing, or something else? Also try restarting your browser. There's an outstanding bug where sometimes Markdown Here in Firefox mysteriously stops working and requires a restart. Adam
  6. I’m the developer of Markdown Here. Thanks for mentioning it, Stefan. If anyone has any feedback or questions I’d be happy to hear them. I should clarify that it wasn’t the “community” that said MDH “works great” with Evernote — it was me. So… take that with a grain of salt. And report a problem if you find one. (Tangentially… Markdown Here ought to work in this forum editor, since it seems to be using CKEditor, which MDH generally works with. Except the contenteditable attribute is on the html element rather than the body. Interesting… I’m not sure I’ve seen that before. Maybe I’ll add a check/fix for that.)
