As a regular user of stackexchange, I really like the markdown editor we have here. With some additional buttons it is really fun to write articles.
On my Joomla page on the other hand, I usually use the JCE editor which has lots of buttons. However, for including code (I use google codeprettify as well) I still have to switch to html view and input the
pre tags manually. Additionally, using the usual markdown wrappings for italics, bold,
inline code, etc. is faster than pressing some button, so I would like to use this instead.
Is someone using markdown actively with Joomla and can give some tips? Is it possible to have the same editor as here on SE? Additionally, I'm interested in how I can get code blocks working. I tried the ACE X Markdown Editor (AMD) and this didn't seem to work.
