Really impressive work!! A WYSIWYG editor is super helpful, especially because not everyone is used to writing in Markdown.

Thanks, for me the main thing wasn't the markdown but more the liquid tags. Plus I still like being able to press CTRL + B to bold some text, it just feels nicer!

Hopefully I get to push the next version this week which will have side-by-side preview and editor, but I have to admit I decided to go the hard route and write a markdown parser to HTML converter (rather than just grab a good one off the shelf!) and it really is not as easy as you would think so it might be a couple of weeks! 🤣
