Introducing SimpleMarkPPC.

SimpleMark's Opening Window

SimpleMark is a simple app for creating, editing, and exporting MarkDown documents for PowerPC Macs. The few existing MarkDown capable editors for Power Macs are aimed purely for coding with MarkDown support as a secondary feature. The goal for SimpleMark is to be a more MarkDown-centric app, helpful in distraction free writing, coding, and blogging. At its core, SimpleMark is essentially a GUI wrapper for the excellent MultiMarkDown, an open source command line utility which transforms MarkDown writing into other various formats.

SimpleMark's current version is 1.2, released November 13, 2016.

You can download SimpleMark via Dropbox or from this website.
