Nota is a Windows Markdown* editor I created for myself to be able to write documents without being distracted by too many options. At the time (2014) there weren’t any well designed Markdown editors available for Windows.
*Markdown is a text-to-HTML conversion tool for web writers. Markdown allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, then convert it to structurally valid XHTML (or HTML). (Source)
The Nota interface when you open it for the first time.
I built Nota using web technologies like NW.js because that allowed me to use my knowledge in web design and use that for building a “native” application. So the Nota editor is kind of a website disguised as a native application. You can view the source code for Nota on GitHub.
