The idea behind Instant Coffee was born yesterday when I was looking for some awesome editor with What You See Is What You Get capabilities and built-in support for Markdown .
Coffee, Coffee, Coffee
Since I switched to a Jekyll generated blog, I write all my posts in Markdown , but I wanted instant visual feedback to see how my text looks like as I'm typing ... here we are.
This is a prototype, but it's perfectly enough for my basic editing needs, feel free to fork it, hack it, then submit a pull request; any contribution is more than welcome!
The source code can be found on GitHub as usual right here .
Instant Coffee is another prime example, just like SexyGrep of converting a web app into a desktop app using QT and WebKit, we really don't need Adobe Air and other proprietary bullshit.
