Strike App

Stike is a relatively recent new markdown supporting text app
Marked (unsurprisingly) works when it exports to md format

It would be helpful if it could do a live preview of the native format tech time it is saved

    I can't even find a working website for Strike to check it out. Do you have a link that I don't?

    Hi Brett

    thanks for fast response
    no as you doubtless found all the App Store links and developer site are

    there is a reddit r/strikeapp - where I have just asked what’s going on &
    will let you know if I get an informative response.
    I believe Strike shared some developers with Airmail, so I hope this is

    *bar a number of bugs it looked like a very elegant lightweight note taking
    app, not sure where I’ll go if it’s been abandoned, AppleNotes is becoming
    powerful and is clearly well integrated, but I found being able to switch
    in and out of Markdown very useful as part of my workflow*

    Kind regards

    Just as a point of interest, nvALT offers excellent Markdown editing and is the only app that currently takes advantage of Marked's streaming preview, allowing truly real-time integration. Marked also works with Bear and The Archive, among others.

    Just had a response from developers saying they are scheduling a new
    response soon. Asked how I can get the Marked team in touch with them...

    Used nvALT for a long while (and MMC) on your recommendations - very much
    got me into using markdown, but found nvALT left me rather unstructured.
    Bear OTOH was too much (over complex/slow/costly), subscribed for a year,
    but found it too slow and switched to Strike halfway through

    find markdown & associated tools wonderful for fast semi structured notes,
    when I am working on a project, Then try and tidy up keep the useful bits
    into a more structured tool and throw the more redundant pieces

    Hi Brett
    The Strike website is up again now
    (and has live support running too)

    some details there - clearly the subreddit r/strikeapp gets quick response from the team.

    hope this works well for Strike & Marked
    cheers John

    Ok, well if they get in touch with me, I'd be happy to see if Marked integration is a possibility. I assume it doesn't store text files directly on the disk, so it would require either direct support from them or an AppleScript capability to get the content of the current note...
