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

This is awesome, as someone in the middle of writing a ton of markdown content I share your pain with the existing editors out there so will be giving this a try!

One thing I am curious about - grammarly. Did you manage to get this working? It's super tedious copy/pasting into their online editor to check things constantly.

Not yet, but its fairly easy to load Chrome Extensions into Electron:

Just have to download the extension and then use the Electron API addDevToolsExtension

const path = require('path')
const os = require('os')

   path.join(os.homedir(), '/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/Extensions/fmkadmapgofadopljbjfkapdkoienihi/4.3.0_0')

Its a pain point for myself as well. I'm just in the middle of publishing a 10 hour course, so something that show up on Fast-Author in a week or two
