React Markdown Editor with preview

How cool would it be to have a markdown editor for your files?

With this editor you can do it, just make sure to do the following:

  • Fork this repo.
  • Clone your forked repo:
git clone{username}/markdown-editor.git 
  • Use it as you want to.

Do you need different styles for it?

  • Go to to src/hooks/use-codemirror.tsx edit the theme, so far I’m using oneDark theme, but you can replace it with the theme that you like.

  • Themes:


To install the dependencies just do an:

npm install or yarn install


To start the app just an:

npm start or yarn start

Use case

// css for the app container 
import './app.css';
import Editor from './components/editor';
import Preview from './components/preview';

const App: React.FC = () => {
  // initial state for the editor and preview
  const [doc, setDoc] = useState<string>('#Hello, World!\n');

  // Change handler
  const handleDocChange = useCallback((newDoc) => {
  }, []);
  return (
    <div className='app'>
      <Editor onChange={handleDocChange} initialDoc={doc} />
      <Preview doc={doc} />

export default App;
