MacDown

An open source Markdown editor for OS X, released under the MIT License. MacDown is heavily influenced by, the seemingly defunct, Mou offering a similar editor and live preview interface. It uses the Hoedown parser meaning it’s both efficient and highly configurable, including syntax highlighting in fenced code blocks with language identifiers, TeX-like math syntax, GFM task lists, Jekyll front-matter, and more. You can also provide custom CSS for PDF and HTML rendering to get the exact style you’re looking for.
