Versatil Markdown

Versatil Markdown

for macOS Yosemite/El Capitan/Sierra

Simple is good, but sometimes you need something a little more...Versatil

A hypernotebook built around Markdown/CommonMark, with 1Password integration, HTML/CSS support, syntax highlighting, frictionless keyboard flow, smart drag-n-drop insertion, multiple themes, document aliasing, and more.

Display First

You spend a lot of time documenting all the aspects of your websites, taking notes on your business, or crafting your latest blog posts. You want to write in Markdown, but why do you need to read it that way?

Versatil renders your text when you're not editing it, allowing you to read and reference it in a more beautiful and natural way.

  • No Preview Button

    If you're not editing it, then you're seeing it beautifully displayed.

Write in Markdown

Whether you’re keeping track of the technical details of all the websites you manage or storing thoughts on various projects, you can write it in the familiar Markdown syntax. Built on the emerging CommonMark specification and enhanced with GitHub Flavored Markdown, you get all the normal Markdown goodness, plus task lists and tables.

  • 100% CommonMark compliant

    Conforms to the CommonMark specification

  • Common Sense Drag/Drop

    Drag a link or an image from your browser into your text, and have it inserted as a proper link or image.

  • Stored as Text

    Your data is stored as plain text, so you're not locked into a difficult to access format.


Embedded HTML and CSS is also supported. So if you want to add special sections or formatting, go right ahead.

For the true power user, you can utilize the embedded Bootstrap 3 framework. Although your source might not render correctly in other Markdown editors (without the proper support), the power is there if you wish to take advantage of it.

  • HTML/CSS and Bootstrap 3

    Serious flexibility with the embedded Bootstrap 3 framework

  • Syntax Highlighting

    For all those code snippets and Bash recipes, have it nicely syntax highlighted for easier reading.

Additional Features

  • Dark Appearance and Multiple Editor Themes

    A dark appearance, as well as Normal, Solarized Dark, and Solarized Light editor themes are included.

  • 1Password Integration

    If you use 1Password to store your logins to various websites, you can easily create a link to one of these sites.

  • Document Aliasing

    Sometimes information belongs in more than one place. Create aliases to virtually place a note in any section/folder where it needs to be, and edit a note from any of its aliases.

  • Notes in the Cloud

    Choose where you want to keep your valuable notes stored — locally on your computer, or in cloud storage such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, or iCloud Drive.

  • Sparks

    An easy way to chronicle/journal and capture thoughts or ideas through the creation of "sparks". Each spark is stamped with a date and time and kept in chronological order, so you can quickly browse through them.
