Discussion on: I had to build my own Markdown Editor because no tool was fast enough for me.

Nice, but I think you built it because you couldn't find a tool that had all the features you want built-in. The line about it not being fast enough is to do with workflow, not the editor.

I mean, Vim is pretty fast at editing markdown, but it doesn't have image editing features, and that's ok. Other people's workflows will be to use an image editor to edit images and a text editor to edit text. Building a behemoth is fine, but it's not going to speed up other people's workflows.

I thought that was obvious. I guess I'll do more exposition dumps in the future.

What's your point here? I built it for me. If you're doing the same kind of content creation as me then it will absolutely speed up your workflow.
